IRW working groups seek to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research on women, gender, and sexuality at Rutgers. We nurture innovative ideas, both big and small. We also support projects that bridge research and activism, develop public scholarship, or encourage professional development.
If you are a faculty member who is exploring a new area of research relating to gender or sexuality and looking for others to partner with, or a graduate student who wishes to start a writing group, please reach out to IRW. We provide financial support, meeting space, and logistical assistance for projects lasting from one to four semesters. The topics of working groups are open, and may also involve skills-building, such as grant writing or even community organizing. See our current call for proposals for more information.
