We're in this Together: (Re)imagining resistance against borders, barriers, and binaries

Join Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies for its 13th annual Student Research Colloquium, an intimate conference setting that highlights the intersectional work of undergraduate and graduate students (of any year and department) across many fields and disciplines. 

Friday, April 12 | 11:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.

Smith Memorial Student Union, Rooms 327/8/9

This colloquium offers a platform for students and faculty to explore the intersection of feminism, sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, age, ability, education-level, socioeconomic status, and religion through inspired student work across many fields, disciplines, and conversations. 

This year's theme is informed by power dynamics in the U.S. politics. The current political climate entraps us within artificial divisions both systematically and interpersonally, through oppressions in the form of body politics (including sexual and reproductive rights and gender-based violence); racism and white supremacy; imperialism; and attacks on personal rights and identities.

The keynote address will be given by Bamby Salcedo, president and CEO of the TransLatin@ Coalition, a national organization that focuses on addressing the issues of transgender Latin@s in the U.S. She will speak at 4 p.m.

You're invited to come listen and add your voices and visions to this movement for change.
