Annual Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Student Conference

The primary goal of the conference each year is to provide a forum where students can present their important work with issues of gender, women and/or sexuality.

The conference features student research and writing in the area of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and provides a unique opportunity for students to come together to share ideas and papers. It is the only forum on campus that features student work from across many different disciplines and perspectives, including literature, history, anthropology, and psychology.

According to Dr. Jennifer Nelson, professor and director of the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies program, “welcoming students from diverse backgrounds serves as an inspirational and important element of the conference. There are a lot of students who don't major or minor in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, but still take courses in the field and do very interesting research,” she said. “We wanted a forum to show off their important work as well.”

Due to the closure of the University of Redlands, the 12th Annual Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Student Conference was adapted to a website platform. The website includes downloadable versions of the submissions we received and would have been presented at the conference. Additionally, see the gallery of artwork submissions, including the winning art piece used for the conference poster. We hope to continue to use this website in the future as a platform to share the work WGS students produce.

Thank you to our WGS student workers: Megan Wilensky, Alyssa Haney, and Aimee Carrillo; and the Student Conference Organizing class (WGS 250-01): Camden Padilla, Gabriela Cavazos, Emilie Lesser, and Kayla Conley, for planning the conference and creating this website.
