GWS Graduate Student Brown Bag Series

The GWS Graduate Student Brownbag offers students the chance to present their work to faculty and students from across the disciplines. We seek students from any discipline who are doing work related to women's and gender studies. The GWS Graduate Student Brownbag organizing committee seeks volunteers for the spring semester. The talks are held in 1250 University Hall and all are welcome. Feel free to bring your lunch. We will provide light refreshments.
