Dr. Rumya S. Putcha's first book, The Dancer’s Voice: Performance and Womanhood in Transnational India, will be released in December 2022 by Duke University Press.

The Institute for Women's Studies is hiring a full-time Administrative Assistant. We'll begin reviewing applications in the next couple weeks, so please share with anyone you think might be interested.

Dr. Patricia Richards has been appointed the next Director of the Institute for Women's Studies, effective August 1, 2022. Per Dean Dorsey's memo:
