Engendering Scholarship Lecture Series

Engendering Scholarship is a lecture series devoted to contemporary scholarship in Women's and Gender Studies.  Graduate students, junior scholars, and senior scholars from LSU and other universities across the U.S. give presentations on their current research interests and invite questions from the audience about their work.  Past presentations have covered a wide range of topics including feminist bioethics, Southern queer identities, the impact of gender on macropartisanship in US politics, and Afro-Cuban religious culture. This series has something for everyone, so watch for our upcoming lecture announcements!
