WGS Student Conference
The University of Redlands will host the 2013 Women’s and Gender Studies Student Conference from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, March 22 at the Orton Center. It is being held in lieu of Women’s History Month with the main goal of giving students an opportunity to present their work in Women’s and Gender Studies.
Dr. Jennifer Nelson, an associate professor and director of Women’s and Gender Studies says this is the only forum at the University of Redlands for undergraduates that allows all students from every department a chance to showcase their work and it shows that women and gender are important to every field.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for people across the University to get a sense of the exciting academic work that students are doing in WGS across the disciplines,” Nelson said.
The public is invited to hear keynote speaker, Ines M. Talamantez present "Building Reciprocal Feminist Theory: Gathering Indigenous Women's Knowledge in the Americas"at 7 p.m. in the Orton Center.
