The Handbook on Service Learning in Women’s Studies and the Disciplines brings together educators from several disciplines (English, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, Women’s/Gender Studies) who teach a women’s studies service learning course, or a course with significant attention to gender and diversity. This collection of service learning syllabi, assignments, and essays provides the reader with numerous methods and examples of how service learning can be incorporated into a wide array of courses differentially situated within the curriculum of a college or university. For example, teaching a women’s studies course that is also a general education course requires a somewhat different logic and set of practices than an upper level women’s studies course within the major, or a course which serves as a culminating experience for the major. Also addressed is how to transform spring break and internships into service leaning options and how to create a summer camp that serves the community. Guidelines, advice, and lessons learned provide the reader with the information and confidence necessary to initiate a service learning course.
