SS19 Colloquia - Rocio Quispe Agnoli.png

Is it possible to imagine national histories written by women? If yes, would this be an expression of gendering historical discourse with an equal value as the official one written by male authors? And what does it mean to be a woman author?

Dr. Rocío Quispe-Agnoli gives her colloquia talk on Friday, March 15 in 303 International Center. Stop by at 1:30 p.m. to attend!

Friday 3/29 - 5th Biennial Undergraduate Research Showcase

The Center for Gender in Global Context (GenCen) invites MSU undergrad students to present research exploring issues of gender, women, and sexuality locally, nationally, and globally for its fifth biennial undergraduate research conference on Friday, March 29, 2019. The showcase, entitled "New Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality: an Undergraduate Showcase," is designed to inspire undergraduate research on women, gender, and sexuality and contribute to the advancement of a focused learning community for students and faculty. This event will provide an opportunity for undergraduates to present their work on these topics in a professional setting and receive feedback, as well as allow them to connect, network with, and learn from graduate students, faculty, and other undergraduates in similar fields. The event will also feature Keynote Speaker Dr. Jacqueline Rhodes!

Dr. Stern will be presenting The Canary in the Coal Mine as the keynote for the spring 2019 It's On Us Week of Action. This presentation utilizes the ongoing debate over whether or not rape jokes are appropriate to explore the foundations of rape culture in a meaningful and accessible way. The Canary in the Coal Mine will highlight what factors support sexual violence within popular and military cultures, drawing on research from the fields of moral development education, bystander intervention, and sexual violence prevention education.
