16th Annual Emerging Scholarship in Women's and Gender Studies Student Conference

This conference provides an opportunity to share research with undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty affiliates of the Women's and Gender Studies from all departments. The Center's theme for 2008-09 is "Global Feminism" but research on any aspect of the study of gender and/or sexuality is welcome. This is the student run conference of CWGS, not to be confused with any other conference.
