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 2020 Symposium theme is #Feminism: Gender and the 2020 Elections. Our March event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, we have rescheduled our event with the original slate of speakers for October 30, 2020. The event will be accessible online via Zoom. Registration is required to receive the link to each panel. Early registrants will also receive a free digital copy of Zerlina Maxwell’s new book The End of White Politics.
