I am the project director for this 4-year, federally funded (FIPSE) student and faculty exchange project between the Department of Women's Studies at UC and 5 other women's studies or gender-focused programs in Mexico, Canada, and the US. Our partners include York University (Toronto, Canada), Mount Saint Vincent University (Halifax, Canada), El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (Tijuana, Mexico), Universidad de las Americas (Puebla, Mexico), and the University of Arizona (Tucson, USA). The project has funded two summer institutes (York Univesity in June 2006 and Universidad de las Americas in June 2007) led by faculty and participated in by students from all 6 institutions and continues to fund qualified graduate and undergraduate students to spend a term at one of the partner institutions outside their country. Faculty may also engage in unfunded one-on-one exchanges. A new grad/undergrad course at UC, North American Women's Studies, has been created for the project which will be continued and offered online in future and a transborder reader may also emerge on this subject. We plan to continue exchanges for students and faculty beyond the funding period to further develop pedagagy and scholarship on studying women and gender in a North American regional context.

Project commenced on September 1, 2004
