Events

 

IRWG hosts a wide variety of lectures, panel discussions, symposia, and other events to stimulate conversations and share new scholarship related to women, gender, and sexuality. Our events appeal to a university audience as well as the general public, and are always free of charge. We feature speakers from a variety of academic disciplines, from U-M as well as from other world-class institutions.

Many events are sponsored by our faculty-led programs, while others are part of ongoing series such as Gender: New Works, New Questions, or partnerships with other units and departments.

If you need accommodations to get the most out of an IRWG event, please contact our events planner Heidi Bennett at heidiab@umich.edu or 734-647-6394.

Who's your dream team?

  

"It was incredible to sit on a panel and hear my dream team of scholars from each field—Professors Karyn Lacy from Sociology, Gayle Rubin from Women's Studies and Anthropology, and Charles Hiroshi Garrett from Musicology—engage my book from their differing disciplinary perspectives. . .What a brilliant format and series for discussing new work in gender and sexuality studies.”

– Nadine Hubbs (Women’s Studies, Music), author of Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music
