2. Gender and Sexuality Resource Center announces faculty fellows

The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center has named Dr. Angelique Harris, assistant professor of social and cultural sciences, and Dr. Ed de St. Aubin, professor of psychology, as its 2013-2014 faculty fellows. The two faculty fellows will serve as a resource for campus departments, as well as engage in scholarly activities related to gender and sexuality.

While in residence at the GSRC in fall 2013, Harris will continue her research project, "Promoting Healthy Body Weight among African-American Women in Lindsay Heights," in partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Bread of Healing Clinic. She will also build partnerships to explore projects that will advance the university's diversity and inclusion initiatives.

During his GSRC residency in spring 2014, de St. Aubin's research and community work will address the intersection of faith and sexuality in the lives of university students. He plans to expand his ongoing study on how undergraduate students experience faith and sexuality, currently underway in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and to host forums promoting interdisciplinary learning and scholarship among faculty and students.

For more information, contact Dr. Susannah Bartlow, director of the GSRC, at 8-0704.
