What We Do

 

       The Gender Research Institute (GRID) encourages, facilitates, and showcases gender-related research, teaching, and social engagement that address why the 21st century is still a time profoundly structured by gender, racial, ethnic, sexual, and economic inequality.

       GRID is a meeting ground where researchers, teachers, students, outreach professionals, and scholar-activists from across the globe come together to study, debate, and translate intellectual discussion and practical experience into projects of social justice on a multitude of local, national, and international scales.

"Radical Unlearning" acknowledges, in the words of bell hooks, that "our ways of knowing are forged in history and relations of power." This recognition shapes social experiences, our academic approaches, and our performance of community.  The seminar will facilitate critical thinking about the entanglements of power and knowledge through stimulating interactions among participants and guest speakers.

A Letter from GRID Director Annabel Martín To the Dartmouth Community:

The Gender Research Institute wishes to express its commitment to its core mission of "encouraging, facilitating, and showcasing gender-related research, teaching, and social engagement that address why the 21st century is still a time profoundly structured by gender, racial, ethnic, sexual, and economic inequality." Our dark political moment has highlighted just how important it is in these troubled and worrisome times to use the power of our intellectual resources to better ground the core of our community values. Never has integrating what we do in the classroom, in our study halls, and in our activism been more relevant. Our commitment is to create and support safe environments for the entire community, to stand firmly behind the liberal arts mission, and to be vigilant of the mean-spiritedness that wants to dominate our nation. We encourage all community members to stay active and to remember that the "other's" difference is also our own. Our spring seminar, "Radical Unlearning: Feminist Reflections on Transgression, Humility, and Chaos" (Ivy Schweitzer and Pati Hernández) hopes to be a place for these kinds of discussions and work. You are all invited.

Annabel Martín

Director, Gender Research Institute
