Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies
Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary major in which students, in consultation with their advisors, craft a course of study focusing on the social construction of gender as a category of analysis within the broader matrix of race, class, ethnicity, and sexual identity. The core of the major is an individually designed concentration consisting of four courses. The concentration should be a well-focused area of study that requires an interdisciplinary approach. Recent and potential concentration topics include for example:
- Art & Activism
- Feminist Science & Technology Studies
- Gender, Race and Health
- International Gender and Human Rights
- Reproductive Politics
- Sexualities and the Law
- Technologies of Self
When students declare the major, they are assigned to an advisor who will then work with them to design a concentration. Although not all of the courses that contribute to the concentration need be FGSS listings, the four courses must together make up a coherent approach to the topic of the concentration. Only two credits transferred from another institution may be applied to the major. A 500 word proposal describing the concentration must be approved by the student’s advisor, and submitted to the FGSS office by the end of the fall semester of the junior year.

Additional Requirements for the Major:
1. Two core courses:
Gateway course (to be taken in the student’s first or second undergraduate year): Prospective majors may choose their gateway course from among several marked as such in the Program’s annual listing of courses. Note: Students who take more than one gateway course may also count the other(s) they have taken toward the FGSS major.
FGSS209: Feminist Theories, normally taken in the junior year. Prerequisite: gateway course. Preference to junior and senior majors.
2. A distribution requirement of two courses, which must be from two different disciplines, and should not overlap in their content with courses taken for the concentration.
3. Senior Research Requirement: In the senior year, majors must complete an essay (1 credit), or a thesis (2 credits). This research must be centered on a theme or topic related to the concentration, and will be supervised by a tutor who may also be the student’s advisor. During the semesters in which students complete a thesis, they must be registered with the tutor for the appropriate tutorials FGSS409 (Fall) and 410 (Spring). (For Honors Thesis, see below.)
4. Senior Seminar (FGSS405): All seniors must participate in this pro-seminar.
Summary of Requirements for the Major:
(a total minimum of 10 credits)
- FGSS Gateway course (1 credit)
- FGSS209 (Feminist Theories) (1 credit)
- Two courses for distribution (2 credits)
- Four courses composing the area of concentration (4 credits)
- Senior Research Requirement and relevant tutorial (1 or 2 credits)
- FGSS 405 Senior Seminar (1 credit)
Honors in FGSS:
Rising seniors wishing to write a Senior Honors Thesis (click here for more information) must have, at the end of their junior year, an average of at least B+ in all of the courses that count for the major. These courses include the following: gateway course, FGSS 209 (Feminist Theories), two distribution courses, and the four courses from the student’s area of concentration within the major. Prospective thesis writers must submit to the FGSS Chair by the last Friday in April of their junior year a transcript reflecting that they have met this requirement (or will have done so by the end of the junior year). Only students who complete the two-semester thesis can stand for honors. Students who have not achieved a B+ average will undertake the one-semester senior essay project.
Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a member of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) Group, based in Yokohama, has delivered the first LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) fuel supply system “FGSS (Fuel Gas Supply System)” for dual-fuel marine engines. This system will be installed onboard the first LNG fueled pure car carrier (PCC) built in Japan, which is currently under construction at Shin Kurushima Toyohashi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
The FGSS is an LNG fuel gas supply system developed by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding utilizing LNG and vaporized gas handling technology developed through its long experience on the construction of LNG carriers, and also has been verified for marine use backed by accumulating experience in marine engine test facilities at engine manufacturers.
The FGSS consists of LNG fuel tanks, LNG fuel gas supply units and control unit etc., and is delivered in modules, which is expected to contribute to the optimum design of the cargo space and help the shipyard to shorten the installation period, as well as support safe operation by customizing the control system, etc. of FGSS to meet the operational needs of the shipowner.
Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has also provided the shipbuilding yard with the engineering service and technical support relating to the gas handling of the ship.
The supply of FGSS is expected to greatly contribute to the environmental performance of the ship and not only to meet the sulfur oxide (SOx) emission regulations coming effect globally in 2020, but also to improve the energy efficiency (CO2 emissions per unit of transportation) of the ship by approximately 40%, which is far exceeding the International Maritime Organization (IMO) EEDI Phase 3 requirements(1) that will become effective in 2025. The ship is additionally expected to reduce SOx by approximately 99% and nitrogen oxides (NOx) by approximately 86% compared with the conventional heavy oil-fired engines. Further, the ship has also been adopted by Japan’s Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism as the model project to reduce CO2 emissions by using alternative fuel.
To convert conventional oil-fired ship into LNG fuel ship is one of the solutions to conform to the emission regulations. By providing FGSS and the related engineering services and technical support for new buildings and conversions, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is going to contribute to the economy for the ship owners and operators, increase the added value of the ships and reduce the environmental load that is increasing on a global scale.
(1) EEDI Phase 3 requirements:
Regulations on the energy efficiency of ships based on the 2013 revision of the International Convention on the Prevention of Ship Pollution 1997 Protocol (Appendix VI to the MARPOL Convention). EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) is the number of grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) required to carry 1 ton of cargo for 1 mile, and the reduction rate from the baseline (baseline) will be gradually enhanced. Car carriers are required to implement reductions of 5% by 2015 (Phase 1), 15% by 2020 (Phase 2), and 30% by 2025 (Phase 3).
Argentina’s state-run oil company, YPF, has shipped the country’s third liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo, marking its entrance into the European market earlier this month, Kallanish Energy reports. The company said it exported 130,000 cubic meters of LNG to Barcelona, Spain, on Dec. 31, without naming a buyer. The Methane Kari Elin tanker was scheduled…
Investments in LNG terminals in Brazil will undergo radical changes in the coming years. The three operating terminals in the country were built by state-run oil company Petrobras, but new projects from private sector firms are emerging as the NOC reduces its participation in the oil and gas midstream and downstream markets to focus on…
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) demand could grow by 30Mm3/d in Brazil if the country started using LNG-powered trucks, according to state-run Petrobras’ natural gas commercialization executive, Alvaro Tupiassú. Tupiassú said the southeast, and partially the northeast, present most potential for LNG trucks. “Petrobras is looking at this since it will displace the diesel market,” he…
