Every spring, the Gender and Women’s Studies program organizes the Gender and Women's Studies Student Research Conference to highlight and celebrate gender focused work produced by students from across the university during the previous year. Undergraduate and graduate students present their work on panels or through performance. The afternoon culminates with a keynote address by a nationally recognized scholar or performer. The conference is free and open to the public.
This year, the conference is presented with The Greater Philadelphia Women's Studies Consortium.
Projects or papers completed during Spring and Fall 2016 are eligible for submission. Call for Papers.
Our keynote speaker will be Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
As author, curator, editor, and public intellectual, Steele has been instrumental in creating the modern field of fashion studies and in raising public awareness of the cultural and social significance of fashion.
