Research Colloquium Series

In many courses across the curriculum, in our Research Colloquium Series, in special events and lectures, and in the annual Beyond the Classroom student forum where undergraduate and graduate students present their work on women and gender, the WGSS program fosters a community of engaged thinkers and intelligent activists on gender justice and social transformation.
