Re:Gender works to end gender inequity and discrimination against girls and women by exposing root causes and advancing research-informed action. Working with multiple sectors and disciplines, we are shaping a world that demands fairness across difference.
Panelists include: Ara Wilson (Associate Professor in Women's Studies and Director of the program in the study of sexualities), Robyn Wiegman (Professor, Women's Studies and Literature), and Doriane Coleman (Duke Law School).
Location: Breedlove Room
Sponsored by the Kenan Institute and the Program in the Study of Sexualities.
What is research and what role does it play in effecting social change? What does it mean to be a professor and researcher, particularly as a woman of color? Why should women get involved in research as undergraduates and graduate students?
Our Spring Women's Research Forum will explore opportunities and challenges facing researchers when addressing social issues. Professors Billie Gastic and Charleen Brantley and graduate student Susan Choy will discuss various ways that students can make a difference through research. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
