WGS Research Seminar
The Women and Gender Studies Research Seminar is a student-focused monthly forum, for the presentation of work-in-progress engaged in interdisciplinary feminist studies and its many intersections. Like a departmental colloquium, the seminar’s goal is to foster friendly, yet critically engaged, conversation and to feature the excellent emerging scholarship by graduate students and faculty. The research seminar’s overarching goal is to create opportunities for regular participation in the intellectual life of interdisciplinary feminist studies research here on campus.
