Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop
The Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop (GSSW) is an interdisciplinary workshop committed to the development of critical perspectives on gender and sexuality. The workshop serves as a forum for discussing both graduate student papers and unpublished work from University of Chicago faculty and outside guests. This year (as in previous years) we are presenting a different theme–chosen by a faculty curator–for each academic quarter of the workshop. Our curators this year will be Profs. Demetra Kasimis from Political Science in the Fall, Forrest Stuart from Sociology in the Winter, and Susan Burns from History in the Spring. Graduate students are encouraged to present working chapters of dissertations, master’s theses, and papers that are being prepared for publication. Calls for abstracts will be distributed a month prior to the start of each quarter.
If you are interested in joining our email list, please click here or contact the workshop coordinators, Annie Heffernan (Political Science) and Danya Lagos (Sociology) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional workshop information, including past schedules, can be found on our website.
Day & Time: Alternate Tuesdays (even weeks) from 4:30 to 6 pm
Location: All workshops are held in the first floor seminar room of the Center for Gender Studies, 5733 S. University Avenue, unless stated otherwise.
Gender and Sexuality Studies Working Group
The goal of the Gender and Sexuality Studies Working Group (GSSWG) is to provide 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. Attendance is limited to students and postdoctoral scholars.
Persons with disabilities or who may need assistance, please contact the working group coordinators, Omie Hsu and Katie Hendricks, at email@example.com

Regulating Family Sex and Gender Workshop
The University of Chicago Law School Workshop on Regulating Family, Sex and Gender will resume meetings in the Autumn and Spring Quarters on irregular Wednesdays from 4-6:00 in Room E.
This workshop exposes students to recent academic work in the regulation of family, sex, gender, and sexuality and in feminist theory. Workshop sessions, to be held irregularly throughout the Autumn and Spring quarters, are devoted to the presentation and discussion of papers from outside speakers and University faculty. The substance and methodological orientation of the papers will both be diverse. The grade is based on a substantial paper or series of short reaction papers, with class participation taken into account. Substantial paper writers require permission of the instructor. Undergraduates admitted only with permission of the instructor.
All interested persons are welcome at any workshop sessions that interest them. If you are not on the mailing list and wish to be added, please contact Mary Anne Case at firstname.lastname@example.org.
