WGSS Steering Committee Member Spotlight: Dr. Christy Holmes

Dr. Christy Holmes (Associate Professor and WGSS Program Director) is passionate about the (inter)discipline. Her B.A. (The College of New Jersey), M.St. (Oxford University), and Ph.D. (Ohio State University) are all in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and throughout her studies she has focused on transnational feminisms, Chicana/x and Latin/x feminisms, ecofeminisms, and research methodologies and teaching approaches specific to the field of feminist/queer/women’s/gender studies. She loves to mentor undergraduates and graduate students who want to find their own place in WGSS. In addition to her book Ecological Borderlands: Body, Nature, and Spirit in Chicana Feminism, she’s completing a book manuscript on “Intersectional Ecopedagogies” and regularly contributes original research to books and journals in the field (sometimes co-written with DePauw students).
