The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at the University of
Rochester will hold a one-day writing collective on March 2, 2018. The writing collective will provide a
lively platform for graduate students to workshop a paper with fellow graduate students and faculty from
multiple institutions. The aim of the collective is to create an intimate space for emerging scholars of
gender and sexuality to share their work with a focus on preparing the paper for publication. This event is
intended as an opportunity for graduate students to consider issues pertaining to gender, sexuality, race,
class, and disability. Participants will engage with one another in interdisciplinary discussions led by
established scholars in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, whose experience and outstanding
research in their respective fields will benefit and help shape the papers.
We welcome emerging scholars to join us in this one-day program of events that includes a full day of
workshops and a panel discussion. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. To learn more about the Susan
B. Anthony Center and the Susan B. Anthony Interdisciplinary Conference, please visit:
