Remembering Professor Christina Crosby

On Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 the FGSS program lost our fierce, brilliant, and committed friend, teacher, mentor, and colleague, Professor Christina Crosby. Professor Crosby was a founding member of Wesleyan University's Women Studies and helped the changes that led to its becoming Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.  She was the heart and soul of our program. Until the end of her life, she worked to make the world a better place. Her life and work have inspired all of us who were lucky to know and work alongside her. There are memorials and events being planned, with more details will come.  Professor Crosby's obituary can be found at https://www.doolittlefuneralservice.com/obituary/Christina-Crosby
