Call for Presenters: Feminisms Lunch Lectures

Hosted in collaboration with Gender and Women’s Studies


The Women’s Leadership and Resource Center’s Feminisms Lunch Lecture series offers faculty, graduate students, visiting scholars, and activists an opportunity to present their projects, ideas, and works-in-progress on a wide range of topics and engage participants in lively and provocative discussion.

For the Spring 2021 semester, WLRC is partnering with the Gender and Women’s Studies department to invite proposals from UIC graduate students that feature current research, creative, or community projects that engage feminist movements and scholarship. Black and Indigenous students and other students of color in Gender and Women’s Studies are especially encouraged to submit proposals.

The virtual sessions will be 60 minutes long. They should include 25-30 minutes of prepared presentation remarks and time for reflective discussion and interaction and, optionally, commentary from an invited respondent. Students are encouraged to propose multimodal presentations that include visual/aural elements. Both individuals and groups may submit proposals.


  • Submissions are due by 5pm CST Monday, February 22, 2021.
