UWindsor approves new interdisciplinary department

The University of Windsor’s Senate has approved a new Interdisciplinary and Critical Studies Department. The department will grow the university’s Women and Gender Studies, Latin American Studies, Disability Studies, Labour Studies, and Black Studies programs and offer new viewpoints on topics such as law, accounting, and medicine. Drawing on the Windsor-Essex region’s “working-class cosmopolitan” identity, the department will prioritize the needs, perspectives, and histories of marginalized people in academic study. “The University of Windsor is affirming its commitment to challenge and dismantle systemic oppression,” said UWindsor President Robert Gordon.
