Kathryn Norberg, Director, 1992–95
Norberg has been involved with CSW since coming to UCLA in 1986. In
the years between 1988 and 1991, she served intermittently as Associate
Director. In 1991, she became Director of CSW, where she organized
public programs and UCLA working groups on feminist theory, women and
science, and women and politics. During her tenure, CSW hosted
conferences on Mary Wollstonecraft, women and publishing in early
modern Europe, postcolonial theory, and feminist international
relations. She also helped establish the Stone Fellowship for Graduate
Students and the Twin Pines Endowment, which funds graduate student
travel to conferences and research sites. Kate has also been very
active in the Women's Studies (now Gender Studies) Program. She served as
Interim Chair of Women's Studies (now Gender Studies) from 1990 to 1991, and as co-chair from 1998 to 2000.
With Sandra Harding, she wrote the proposal which brought Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society to UCLA. Between 2000 and 2005, she and Harding coedited Signs.
