Workshops

Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop

The Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop (GSSW) provides participants with an interdisciplinary forum for the development of critical perspectives on gender and sexuality. The workshop discusses pre-circulated papers written by University of Chicago graduate students, faculty, and visiting scholars, as well as provides a forum for lectures and job talks. This year we are presenting a different theme--chosen by a faculty curator--for each academic quarter of the workshop. Lisa Ruddick from English is curating the Fall quarter (Subjectivity and Social Life: New Perspectives), Agnes Lugo-Ortiz from Romance Languages and Literatures is curating the Winter quarter (Gender and Slavery), and Hillary Chute from English is curating the Spring quarter (Desire).

Attendees are expected to read the paper in advance of the workshop meeting; papers are made available on the GSSW Blog or via our email list. If you are interested in being included on the workshop email list, please email this year's student co-coordinators.

Annie Heffernan and Rebecca Oh: GSSWorkshop@gmail.com

Day & Time: Second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, 4:30-6:00 PM - schedule
Location: All workshops are held on the first floor of the Center for Gender Studies, 5733 S. University Avenue, unless stated otherwise.

Gender and Sexuality Studies Working Group

The Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop (GSSW) will be sponsoring a graduate students’ working group in the upcoming 2014-2015 academic year. The goal of the working group is to provide for graduate students a forum and space to workshop research and writing at any point in the progress of the work. Students and papers can be from any field, discipline, or methodological tradition, as long as the research is relevant, in some capacity, to gender and sexuality studies, broadly defined.

Persons with disabilities or who may need assistance, please contact the working group coordinators, Omie Hsu and Katie Hendricks, at gssworkinggroup@gmail.com

Day & Time: First and third Tuesday of the month, 4:30-6:00 PM
Location: All workshops are held on the first floor of the Center for Gender Studies, 5733 S. University Avenue, unless stated otherwise.
