Judith Kegan Gardiner Biography by Judith Kegan Gardiner (2000)

I worked in the Circle Women's Liberation Union chapter of CWLU to help found a Women's Studies program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and to support childcare organizing. I still teach at UIC in the English Department and the Gender and Women's Studies Program.

I'm an editor of the interdisciplinary journal Feminist Studies; I also edited the books Provoking Agents: Gender and Agency in Theory and Action and the forthcoming Masculinity Studies and Feminist Theories: New Directions. My current scholarship centers on twentieth-century writing by women and on masculinity in feminist theory.
