A NEW SUBJECT: WOMEN'S STUDIES
AbstractBefore relating my experience with a course on "Women in Modern Society," which I introduced at Loyola College in Montreal in 1971/72, 1 would like to explain how it happened that I became interested in this new subject, Women's Studies. Many will say that courses must be offered to satisfy the interests and needs of the students, not those of the professors. True. But is it not also true that professors' research - and we must hope that people do research on matters that are of interest to them - can be exploited in the classroom, and rightfully and fruitfully so? I believe that the ideal situation occurs when the interests of students and professors meet. In the field of Women's Studies, this seems possible.
