2020 Community of Scholars Virtual Symposium

The Community of Scholars is an interdisciplinary feminist workshop allowing a select group of doctoral candidates from a range of disciplines—ranging from Comparative Literature to Public Health to Education—to engage with each other in rigorous, generative conversations. This Symposium showcases the research and writing that emerged from an intensive 7-week-long summer workshop. 

Because of the sensitive nature of the scholarship displayed in this Symposium, the videos will be available for public viewing only until December 8, 2020.
