Center for Research on Women

Founded in 1982, the Center for Research on Women (CROW), located in the College of Arts and Sciences, is nationally recognized for its pioneering work on race, class, and gender. CROW's mission is to conduct, promote, and disseminate scholarship on women and social inequality. Its approach to research, theory, and programming emphasizes the structural relationships among race, class, gender, and sexual identity, particularly in the U.S. South and among women of color.

CROW-affiliated faculty span the University. They are currently engaged in action-oriented, community-based research on women in Memphis and the U.S. South; in historically grounded research that makes visible global processes affecting the persistence of inequalities in the U.S. South; and in the development of feminist theories and methods.

CROW offers postdoctoral fellowships to scholars studying race and gender in the U.S. South and provides graduate assistantships to students enrolled in the MA program in sociology.
