Student-Centered

Women’s Studies, from the early formation of WIT, has been student-centered. The largest project undertaken occurred in 2001, when the Program raised funds for At Home:  A Kentucky Project with Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman, a semester-long collaborative project of the Women’s Studies Program, Art Department, and Folk Studies & Anthropology.at home house

The 25 participants of At Home transformed an entire house into an art installation exploring the idea of “home.”

Some of the students were photojournalism majors, and they created a photo-documentary of the project.
