The 26th Annual Gender & Sexuality Writing Collective

Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies

October 25-26, 2019, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY


The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at the University of Rochester will hold a two-day writing collective on October 25-26, 2019. 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 their 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 program of events that includes writing workshops and a panel on publishing. Participants will be invited to a dinner reception and other meals will be provided.
