Brown Bag Colloquia

During each of these lunchtime events, an advanced Graduate Feminist Emphasis student discusses his or her work in progress. The initial 45-minute presentation is followed by a 15-30 minute question and discussion period. The Brown Bag series contributes to the professional training of our students, providing presenters with feedback for revising dissertation chapters or articles and preparing for entry into the academic job market.

Faculty Research Colloquia

Individual members of the Core and Affiliated Faculty present on their current research interests and projects. The 45-minute presentation is followed by a 30 minute question and discussion period. In addition to providing a forum for faculty to discuss and refine works-in-progress with an engaged audience, the Faculty Research Colloquia allows students in the Graduate Feminist Emphasis to learn about diverse objects and methods of study in specific disciplines and interdisciplinary fields.
