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.
There will be no Spring 2021 symposium due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in shifting the 2020 Spring Symposium to Fall 2020. Check here for more information on the Spring 2022 symposium as the 2021-2022 academic year unfolds.
