I have been involved with the Women's Studies program in some capacity since 1990 when I joined the faculty of the McIntyre Library. I have been an 'Affiliate' since the beginning of that designation.  I have served on various committees in Women's Studies over the years, most recently several times on the Curriculum Committee, and as a judge for Women's Studies Awards at least four times and received a Faculty award and certificates from the program. I enjoy teaching and working with students on their women's studies research. I've also taught and either designed or assisted in design of Women's Studies 100, 200, 250, 396, 496, on such topics as Introduction to Feminist Theory, Women and Chinese culture, Women and Literature, and Research Methods, served on MA committees on feminist topics for English, and supervised a number of independent-studies students.
