Perham, Minnesota

English Major

Uses Male Pronouns 

I'm a senior from rural Minnesota who likes a lot of things and hates writing about himself but has to. Let's see, I like baking, sewing, quilting, gardening, cleaning, running and other outdoorsy stuff. Take that, combine it with my English major, and I'll make one heck of a stay-at-home dad. At the GSC I work on masculinities issues, MSex, LGBT panels, library maintenance, and a variety of other programming. Outside of the GSC, you'll most likely find me dancing as a member of Semaphore, blogging for the English department, developing film in the photo co-op darkroom, or reading novels in upper Sayles.

Book recommendation

Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks
This book is a succinct, interesting introduction to the history and theory behind feminism in the United States. It also discusses common misconceptions about what feminism is, and the ways we can all work to revitalize feminism. bell hooks is awesome, and this little primer is the perfect introduction to hooks’ work and feminism…for everybody!

Ames, Iowa 

Art History Major, Women's and Gender Studies Concentrator

Hello! I'm Tuggle (sometimes people call me Hannah) and I prefer any pronouns except he/him/his. So it's okay if you refer to me as she/her, they/them, ze/zir, or basically any other zany ones you can think of!

On campus, I play the violin, am a member of CAASHA (Campus Advocates Against Sexual Assault) and procrasti-watch a lot of movies from the Netflix category "Independent movies featuring a strong female lead."Some of my other current hobbies include smashing the patriarchy, quoting OITNB, and stressing about what I'm going to do when I graduate.

The GSC is the bomb dot com, so you should come visit!

Art History Major, European and Women's and Gender Studies Concentrator

Uses male or gender neutral pronouns

Dobrý den from Prague! I'm a junior who is currently abroad but is from New Hampshire. I can usually be seen around campus refusing to do anything in front of a plate of cheese pizza in Burton, intensely procrastinating on 3rd Libe, sobbing into nachos in Sayles, occasionally romping around in the Arb, and laughing at gay advertisements in the GSC. The Carleton architectural feature with which I most closely identify is the Facilities Building's smokestack though I am a huge fan of Basement Scoville. You can find me there or on the couches in Boliou. Stop by and say hi!
