Colloquium Series

Innovative presentations from renowned scholars

Women's & Gender Studies sponsors a colloquium series in which local and national scholars present their research. Because of the personalized nature of our program, students have an opportunity to interact with these scholars both formally and informally. In addition, Women's and Gender Studies cooperates with other departments and groups to co-sponsor poetry readings, films, concerts, panel discussions, and art exhibits of women’s work. Recent visitors and performers include Janet Kourany, Michael Kimmel, Londa Schiebinger, Lise Eliot, Sarah Schulman, Obioma Nnaemeka, tatiana de la tierra, Patricia Hill Collins, Janice Gould, Jean Fagin Yellen, Mahnaz Afkhami, Toi Derricotte, Darlene Clark Hine, Beth Brant, Manjira Datta, Gloria Steinem, Minnie Bruce Pratt, Nomy Lamm, Leslie Feinberg, Barbara Smith, bell hooks, and the Guerrilla Girls.
