Rescheduled Symposium

We are excited to announce the rescheduled Women’s & Gender Studies symposium, Ferguson/Newark/Gender. This event will take place this Wednesday, April 1. In the wake of this month’s Justice Department report about racial bias in policing in Ferguson, this event is more relevant than ever, so we hope you will join us.

The first panel, “FROM FERGUSON TO #BLACKLIVESMATTER AND BEYOND” begins at 2:30pm in room 104–Center for Public Service (CPS also known as the “SPAA” building). The second panel, “QUEERING RIOTS, QUEERING ARCHIVES,” begins at 4:00pm in room 106–Ackerson Hall.

See our flyer below. FREE AND OPEN TO ALL. Hope to see you there!
