“Gender & Sexuality Writing Collective”
The 25th Annual Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies
Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference
March 2, 2018
University of Rochester
The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at the University of Rochester will hold a one-day writing collective on March 2, 2018. The writing collective will provide a lively platform for graduate students to workshop a paper with fellow graduate students and faculty from multiple institutions. The aim of the collective is to create an intimate space for emerging scholars of gender and sexuality to share their work with a focus on preparing the paper for publication. This event is intended as an opportunity for graduate students to consider issues pertaining to gender, sexuality, race, class, and disability. Participants will engage with one another in interdisciplinary discussions led by established scholars in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, whose experience and outstanding research in their respective fields will benefit and help shape the papers.
We welcome emerging scholars to join us in this one-day program of events that includes a full day of workshops and a panel discussion. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
