Women's Studies Program Spring 2014 Events

Our spring calendar of events in gender, sexuality, and women’s studies is available here. We hope you will join us for this series of exciting and cutting-edge events

Spring Events

Most of our planned spring-term events are now on our web calendar. We hope you will join us for part 2 of our "Gender and the Global" series. We have events in feminist studies, transgender studies, masculinity studies, and sexuality studies, with questions of race, ethnicity, and nation front and center. Two of the events center on teaching and pedagogy as well. As always, our events are meant to bring cutting-edge research to the Pitt community.

With the School's support, the request has been sent to the Provost's office for a final decision. The Dietrich School's minutes are available here:
