Integrating Women's Studies into the Curriculum.
Dinnerstein, Myra; And Others
The result of a 3-day conference on integrating women's studies into the college curriculum, this report provides background and information on how the new scholarship on women changes the assumptions, goals, and means of liberal education. It was written specifically for the Association of American Colleges. The SIROW conference was attended by the directors of 17 projects involved in integrating materials on women into the college curriculum. Following background information and a rationale for women's studies in the college curriculum, various approaches used to integrate women's studies into the traditional curriculum and the role that administrators can play are discussed. Funding aspects are examined, and benefits of women's studies integration to colleges and universities are described. Results of the projects that participated in the SIROW conference are presented. Appendices contain the names of participants of the SIROW conference, the conference agenda, and summaries of the curriculum integration projects. (RM)
