Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Gender and Feminist Studies Research

Are there gender discrepancies you've noticed that really bother you? Do women in your school get treated very differently than the men do? Doing a gender and/or feminist project requires close attention to inequality and a willingness to hypothesize solutions. Creativity and a passion for equality is also a must!

Memoir Writing

Have you ever been interested in telling your own story? Memoir writing can be a beautiful tool to write about the experiences that are unique to you. Students can focus on a particular moment in their life that stands out or write more broadly about the ups and downs of their entire life. The personal is political and writing a memoir can be a beautiful way to engage with the political possibilities in one's own story.
