Each March, the WGSS program celebrates Women’s History Month with a day-long symposium focusing on one central theme and featuring panels of scholars, activists, and journalists in dialogue with one another and their audience. This innovative symposium is open to Northeastern faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and interested parties from outside the university. Not a typical academic conference, the symposium features lively, accessible discussions of topics relevant to a broad audience. To view more information about past symposia, please click here.    

The annual Women’s History Month Symposium, Feminists on the Politics of Crisis will be held on March 23 and March 24, 2023 in the Cabral Center at the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute on Northeastern’s Boston campus. This year, we will engage in a new format over the course of one evening opening session (a comedy set and moderated discussion) and a full day of panels on Friday. A full schedule and information on panelists can be found here, as well as a link to registration.
