Women and Marginalized Communities in STEM at the University of Michigan Focus Group Report by Varna Kodoth, B.S., Research Assistant, CEW+. This Women and Marginalized Communities in STEM Focus Group Report discusses the current state of the nontraditional student learning experience in STEM classrooms and department environments at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at U-M. Most importantly, this report offers recommendations and immediate action steps for Staff & Faculty to better support and include underrepresented identities in STEM environments. The results demonstrate that Undergraduate and Graduate student social identities are crucial to academic success in STEM spaces.
Just Love: Feminism, Faith and Intimate Violence by Debotri Dhar, University of Michigan and CEW Visiting Scholar 2015-16 and 2016-17. Based on her research on rape and suicide in India, Dhar explores the troubled shades of love, when it is played out as seduction, deception, and violence. She examines how religion has been used to control women’s bodies and frame the raped female body as unchaste and shamed. Given that the global ubiquity of patriarchy and violence transcends the left-right and religious-secular theoretical divides, she suggests alternative theoretical and cultural, literary and lived conceptions of justice: just faith, just law, just love.
