The Women's and Gender Studies Program at St. Francis Xavier University is celebrating our 25th anniversary! On this occasion, we are bringing together representatives from interdisciplinary feminist studies programs in Atlantic Canada to reflect on what it means to "do" women's and gender studies here.
Panellists include Dr. Ann Braithwaite (UPEI), Dr. Michele Byers (SMU), Dr. Linda Caissie (STU), Dr. Jennifer Dyer (Memorial), Dr. Nancy Forestell (StFX), Dr. Leslie Kern (MtA), Dr. Carmen Poulin (UNB), Dr. Anne Quema (Acadia), and Dr. Meredith Ralston (MSVU). The panel will be moderated by Dr. Rachel Hurst (StFX).
Questions that the panel will discuss include:
* How do we intellectually constitute our programs, and translate/define a field, within the space/place that we are located within?
* Why does feminist activism and scholarship continue to have relevance for our students?
* Where do we want to be in 25 years?
A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion. All are welcome!
This panel is sponsored by the Jules Léger Endowment for the Faculty of Arts and the Women's and Gender Studies Program at St. Francis Xavier University.
