Student Research Events
Each year, the Tufts University WGSS Program hosts a senior presentations event where graduating WGSS majors and minors present their work. The senior project is a substantial interdisciplinary research paper or other creative or activist work with a written component, which explores and tests traditional and contemporary thinking about women, gender, and sexuality.
Beyond the Classroom
The forum is an opportunity for students to share their work on women, gender, and/or sexuality with the wider Tufts community. Undergraduate and graduate students present abstracts of research papers or creative projects done in classes or independent studies during the previous year. On thematic panels organized to highlight dynamic intersections among presentations on different topics and in various formats, students present for 5-7 minutes each and then engage as a panel in discussion with the audience. Faculty moderators help students prepare their presentations, introduce the panels, and facilitate the discussion.
