Introduction and Thoughts on P5

Hi, my name is Annelise and I am a senior at Haverford. I am majoring in Spanish and minoring in Gender and Sexuality Studies. I am just returning from a semester abroad in Seville, Spain and in the Spring I will be writing my thesis on gay Spanish cinema. My experiences with Gender and Sexuality Studies reflect my academic, personal and professional interests in the subject. I am struck by the use of the word "perspective" in a course entitled Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Gen/Sex. Will we be learning new perspectives? Should we challenge our own? Adopt others? Formulate new ones? I am looking forward to questioning the concept of perspective and its potential shortcomings and advantages.
