About People


Founded in 1971, the Barnard Center for Research on Women brings together scholars and activists through working groups, public events, publications, and multimedia projects that advance intersectional social justice feminist analyses and generate concrete steps toward social transformation. We are committed to vibrant and engaged educational models that stimulate research, teaching, art, activism, policy, and social change, which in turn impact the way we know and understand the world around us.

Through our work we seek to:

  • Deepen analysis and skills for addressing our current political moment by amplifying black feminist, anti-racist, anti-colonial, feminist, left political thought, practice and critique.
  • Provide material, financial, research, administrative, and promotional support to activists and social justice feminist scholars working on the critical issues of our political moment through the Social Justice Institute.
  • Develop and support intersectional feminist pedagogies with departmental collaborators by engaging students, educators, and other relevant constituencies in curricular initiatives and BCRW projects and publications.
  • Create innovative feminist, anti-racist, activist-educational print and multimedia resources with collaborators in response to important political questions and distribute these resources to students, activists, educators, and artists.
  • Engage in accountable relationships with our communities and contribute to transformative change by building partnerships with organizations, activists, and cultural workers in New York City, across the US, and transnationally.
