Critical terms for the study of gender by Catharine R Stimpson( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This indispensable volume provides an introduction to the study of gender through an exploration of key terms that are a part of everyday discourse in this vital subject. Catharine R. Stimpson and Gilbert Herdt first provide a careful account of the evolution of the study of gender and its relation to women's and sexuality studies, and the twenty-one essays that follow span the study of gender and sexuality across the humanities and social sciences. Each essay presents the history of a given term - from bodies to utopia - and explains the conceptual importance it carries and the kinds of critical work it can be made to do. Distinguished contributors discuss concepts such as desire, identity, justice, kinship, love, race, and religion, revealing the unexpected histories, problems, and possibilities that each term opens up. The result is an essential reference for studying gender in many disciplinary contexts."--

Women's studies in the United States by Catharine R Stimpson( Book )

9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revealing the amount of work that has been done in women's studies since 1970, the report presents a view of women's studies as it exists today in the United States. The report's broad vision reflects the intellectual vitality and diverse characteristics of the current state of women's studies research, the recommendations for broadening the research effort, the consolidation of the gains made, and the strengthening of existing institutions. The theme of reforming higher education covers five basic topics which include: "The Development of Women's Studies," a tracing of the historical and diverse development of the women's movement and higher education; "Institutionalizing a Field of Study," a discussion of the problems and controversies of the academic status of women's studies in the university; "Women's Studies: Issues and Approaches" a presentation of the various paths and intellectual strategies that emphasize sexual differences and invariably obscure the vital recognition of differences among women; "Women's Studies Today: Achievements and Challenges," a highlight of the international gains to learn how women's studies have helped change public policy, opposition movements, and the efforts to integrate the studies into the curriculum; and "The Future of Women's Studies," a look at the status of women's studies in a middle period of consolidation and the needs which must be met in order to achieve full public understanding of the purpose and capabilities of the discipline. A note section and a selected bibliography are included. (Trs)
Class notes : a novel by Catharine R Stimpson( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harriet Elizabeth Springer was growing up -- too tall, too intelligent, and not quited pretty enough for a girl in the fifties. So when she left a stifling northwest fishing twon for the sophistication of an exlusive eastern women's college, she was looking for the kind of world she could belong to. At Harwyn College, and finally in New York City where she goes in search of a career, Harriet begins to find what she is seeking. Along the way she meets Sloan Trouver, the beautiful, aloof sophomore who introduces her to a daring new friendship; Jean Maurin, an older Yale professor bent on seduction; and Marcia Gold, the rich, worldly New York art dealer who leads Harriet to make discoveries -- and choices -- she had never before dreamed possible." -- Publisher's description

Our "wild patience" : our energetic deeds, our energizing future by Catharine R Stimpson( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Wellesley College Center for Research on Women represents a triumph of women's studies. Women's studies have sought a particular ethic, valuing the moral equality of those who seek education and of those who offer it. Women's studies have sought to alter institutions so that they embody such an ethic and to change the consciousness of both individuals and institutions. It is necessary for those involved in women's studies to maintain the power they have gained and, at the same time, to retain the perspectives of the outsider. Women's studies outside the United States can offer new approaches to child care, to women's collective action, and to doing research about women. There are several questions that women's studies must now confront. These include determining what women's studies are looking at and doing, and examining the causes, nature, and extent of sex differences. Two major attitudes toward sex differences exist. The first is the minimalist attitude which realizes that sex differences exist but goes on to claim that historical forces have largely determined these dissimilarities. The second is the maximalist attitude which proposes that deep, transcultural forces create many sex differences and that the link between biological "sex" and social "gender" is profound. Both of these positions require further study. Because women's studies still meet opposition, another future task of women's studies is to overcome that opposition. (Nb)
