 Professor Spalding’s particular interest is looking at gender through the lens of another time (centuries before us) and place (outside the U.S.). Ultimately, her goal is to equip students to expand their horizons; to have the courage to think and step beyond the familiar; to recognize that human communities everywhere share more than what sets them apart; and to work toward justice and peace in a sustainable world.
