GWSS & Political Science Colloquium Series

The Gender, Sexuality, Power, and Politics Colloquium series will kick-off its inaugural season with lunch on Friday, October 14th at 12:25pm in 319 Coffman Memorial Union. The Colloquium is an exciting collaborative initiative of the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies and Political Science Departments.

It will meet periodically throughout the year to provide a forum for interdisciplinary engagement with research that addresses the complex relationships of gender, sexuality, power, and politics. Scholars from outside the University as well as regular participants-- faculty and graduate students-- will present research at colloquium sessions throughout the year.
