Annual Women's and Gender Studies Conference
March 20 and 21, 2014
Theme: Revolutionary Women
What is the purpose of the Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) conference?
The WGS conference provides an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and the community to come together to share research, engage in artistic expression, disseminate information, and raise awareness for issues surrounding feminism, masculinity, and sexuality. The conference also provides a venue through which to celebrate women and their achievements. It is meant to raises awareness for and to critically evaluate areas of inequity that continue to exist between women and men.
Who can attend?
All students, alumni, faculty, staff, and members of the community are invited to attend the conference. Students who are Women’s and Gender Studies minors and those who are enrolled in Women’s and Gender Studies eligible courses are especially encouraged to attend. We welcome members of the community who are interested in issues surrounding WGS to partake in conference events.
When and where will the conference be held?
The 2014 conference will be held on the campus of Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA on Thursday, March 20th and Friday, March 21st, 2013.
