This transdisciplinary symposium, organized by the Center for Human Growth and Development (CHGD) and the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG), will focus on the growing tensions between mothers’ well-being and the increasing demands of child-rearing. 

Expanding our Network: IRWG Faculty Affiliates

Michigan faculty are engaged in all kinds of exciting research. From healthcare to the humanities, the scope of gender research is vast. On our decentralized campus, it can be difficult for feminist researchers to find one another. That is where IRWG comes in. With our new affiliate faculty program, we are gathering and connecting scholars from across the university who are integral to gender research.
