Feminisms Lunch Lecture Series
Feminism means different things to different people. Join us for lunch as we explore, discuss and highlight feminisms and examine them within various cultural locations and contexts. Every month, the Feminisms Lecture Series will host a guest speaker exploring the varied and complex realms of feminism.
Call for Submissions for the Spring 2019 Feminisms Lunch Lecture Series
The Women’s Leadership and Resource Center would like to invite graduate students, faculty, staff and community members to participate and present in our upcoming Feminisms Lecture Series. This series creates a safe space to explore the varied and complex realms of feminism and deepen our understanding of this complex and multifarious movement while expanding the conversation about what it means to be a feminist. We invite you to submit proposals that engage contemporary and historical issues around women and gender; explore intersectionality, social justice, activism and/or advocacy within feminism, and expand opportunities for awareness, reflection, and empowerment.
This series will be held monthly in the WLRC/CAN Programming Room at 1101 W Taylor Street, 3rd Floor from 12:30 pm to 1:30pm. Lectures should be about 45 minutes long and will be followed by a 10 minute question/answer session.
Please fill out the proposal submission form below to be considered for the Spring 2019 Feminisms Lecture Series. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. However, we encourage you to submit by Monday, January 7, 2019 for best consideration.
