Explore Feminism. Embrace Intersections. Embody Change.
Women’s and Gender Studies sponsors an annual lecture that features local and national scholars and activists who present their work on cutting edge themes in women, gender, and sexuality.
In addition, we cooperate with other UNL departments, programs, and centers to co-sponsor speakers, workshops, films, panel discussions, and other creative work. These events are free and open to students, faculty, alumni, and the surrounding community.
