Community of Scholars Symposium
Please register if you plan to stay for lunch: tinyurl.com/COS-Symposium
The Community of Scholars is comprised of recipients of 2017 summer fellowships from IRWG and the Rackham Graduate School for graduate students pursuing research, scholarship, or creative activities focusing on women and/or gender.
To encourage cross-disciplinary exchange, the fellows participated in a weekly seminar in May and June, during which they discussed their work-in-progress. In July and August, they dispersed for research and writing. They reconvene for the annual Community of Scholars Symposium, to share the product of their summer’s work with each other and a broader audience.
The fellows have designed the panels for this symposium to showcase the conversations across disciplines and fields about scholarship on women and gender that emerged during the summer seminar.
