Women's and Gender Studies

The Alphadelphian, a print journal of sex and gender, was created in 1986 as the WMST senior project of Megan Allen. With each new editor the publication has taken on a slightly different style, giving more weight to certain issues and exploring new territories. However, the purpose remains the same.

Whether it's research, art, or self-discovery, The Alphadelphian features the projects that members of the gender studies community at Alfred University are involved and invested in.

In the spring of 2005, for the first time ever, The Alphadelphian became a self-contained course for WMST credit. The women on this year's staff brought to the table a plethora of ideas, talents, and viewpoints. The result was a publication that reflected the many voices of gender studies at AU.

In an effort to further promote gender studies on and off the AU campus, the spring 2005 staff chose to supplement their print run with an online edition of The Alphadelphian. In addition to expanding the readership of the newsletter, the web edition exists as the pathway to a dialogue between WMST students and faculty at AU and the scholarly community at large.
