Research Workshops

Research Workshop

In order to advance the program’s commitment to inter-disciplinary research and inquiry into the subject of gender, the Gender Studies Program hosts an annual series of research workshops for our graduate students. The workshops involve presentations by graduate students from a variety of departments who work in the area of gender and sexuality.  In advance of each workshop, the presenter shares a copy of one work-in-progress (e.g., conference paper, dissertation chapter) with all GS graduate students.  That work is read closely by all workshop participants, so that the event functions as a rigorous seminar-style discussion with productive feedback on the presenter’s work. Each workshop is followed by a social gathering to build community among our graduate student community.

Workshops are held on Tuesdays from 3:00pm-4:00pm and Thursdays from 5:00pm – 6:00 pm in 337 O’Shaughnessy unless otherwise specified below. The Joint Panels will be held on Fridays from 4:00pm-6:00pm in 337 O'Shaughnessy. 

If you would like to reserve a date for a presentation at one of the Research Workshops please contact one of our Research Workshop coordinators: Danielle (Dani) Green or Emily McLemore.

Sponsored by the Marian Mullin Hancock Gender Studies Fund.
