Video: Symposium offers unique forum for gender issues discussion
March 08, 2009
Now in its 28th year, the Lewis & Clark Gender Studies Symposium brings together artists, activists, and academics to cover a wide range of gender issues including the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality.
The three-day symposium, titled “Poverty, Property, and Personhood: Challenging Gender Injustice,” includes two keynote speakers and nearly 20 other presentations, panel discussions, and performances covering a wide range of gender issues.
In this video, student organizers senior Kacie Dalziel, junior Julia Comstock-Ross, and senior Peter Seilheimer discuss how the symposium came together and the value of this interdisciplinary platform to discuss gender injustice.
The symposium is scheduled Wednesday, March 11 through Friday, March 13.
