Center for Research on Women Research Interest Groups (RIGS) Join us
The Center for Research on Women (CROW) at the University of Memphis hosts several Research Interest Groups (RIGs). The RIGs are designed to bring together interdisciplinary groups of scholars from the university to develop collaborative research ideas related to the core mission of the center, the study of gender as it intersects with race, class, and social inequality.

Women’s Health (Joy Clay, Chair)
Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification (Sharon Horne, Chair)
Women in the Arts and Humanities (Leigh Anne Duck, Chair)
Women and the Environment (Keri Brondo, Chair)
Women, Globalization and the U.S. South (Wanda Rushing, Chair)
Women and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) (Amy Curry, Chair)
Women and Work (Phyllis Betts, Chair)
Women and the Environment (Chair TBA)
