Fall 2018 Schedule

We are excited to announce the Fall 2018 schedule for the Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop. For previous attendees, you may notice that we are experimenting with a new format, pairing graduate student presenters with faculty discussants. Our hope is that this format, in addition to providing the presenter with valuable feedback from faculty outside their committee, will also engender greater cross-disciplinary dialogue and offer new avenues for participation. In addition, we will be holding a panel discussion on managing work and life in academia on October 9th, of which more information is forthcoming. The full schedule, including faculty discussants, can be found below.

Workshops are held on alternate (even week) Tuesdays from 5:00 to 6:30pm in the first floor seminar room of 5733 S. University Avenue, unless otherwise noted. Light refreshments will be provided.
