The Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies Department Conference- “Expanding Horizons”

March 10, 2023
9:30-4:00pm

In 1982, Audre Lorde declared that “there is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”

In 2023, the GSWS Department Conference theme considers this statement from the past as a call to the future. Under the theme “Expanding Horizons,” this year’s conference stages a series of conversations between scholars, artists and curators about the role of visual art, film, poetry and other forms of cultural production in imagining and mobilizing more livable worlds.  

Keynote Speaker: Dhiren Borisa
