The New Scholarship on Women.
Brown, Peggy Ann, Ed.
Forum for Liberal Education, v6 n5 Apr 1984
Ways that colleges and universities are responding to the new scholarship on women are described. First, an essay by Peggy McIntosh, "The Study of Women: Processes of Personal and Curricular Re-vision," considers stresses for the ego and challenges to the intellect that women's studies work brings to faculty members in traditional disciplines. Next, five kinds of courses are described that reflect various interactive phases of awareness in the faculty members teaching them. The following college programs are described: Yale University's Women's Studies Program, Smith College's model for integrating women's experience into the curriculum, Kansas State University's Women's Studies Program, and Stephens College's focus on women in the liberal education requirements and a minor in women's studies. Additionally, updates of programs are presented for Wheaton College, Guilford College, Indiana University-Bloomington, University of Maine at Orono, Mankato State University, Montana State University, and Old Dominion University. Additional programs are also covered: The Claremont Colleges, Dartmouth College, Hope College, Kenyon College, University of North Dakota, Salem College, and Southern Methodist University. Descriptions of new resources for integrating women's studies into the curriculum are also included. (SW)
