Statement of Support for Black Lives from WGSS Faculty
We demand justice for George Floyd, and for all Black lives. We stand in solidarity with the policy demands of the Black Lives Matter movement that call for ending: the death penalty; mass surveillance of communities of color; the privatization of police; the cumulative costs of criminal records; and violence against Black people of all genders.
Leaders of Academic Units at Yale Release Joint Statement on Anti-Asian Racism
We come together to condemn anti-Asian racism, recognizing that this week's murders in Georgia, along with persistent violence and intimidation directed at Asians and Asian Americans elsewhere, reflect legal, economic, and social exclusions, and U.S. militarism in Asia, which are older than our contemporary moment. We call for social justice, and not the reliance on policing and carceral remedies.
We stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration to condemn the anti-Asian, particularly anti-Chinese, hate crimes and harrassment that have increased in communities across the United States as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Combined Ph.D. Program
Our faculty work on questions of gender and sexuality from a wide range of theoretical and methodological locations, concentrating our attention on transnational politics and security regimes, public law and sexual violence, reproduction and reproductive technologies, incarceration, social movements and protest, race and racism, neoliberalism, and Islam.
