Each year, members of the WGSX LLC and other interested students help organize a one-day academic conference in gender and sexuality studies on the SMCM campus.
The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity, especially for undergraduate students, to share their work in WGSX (including St. Mary’s Projects) and to explore the work of their peers and professors.
This year, the Transcending Boundaries conference will be held on Friday, March 6, 2015 from 3:00 to 6:00 in Goodpaster Hall, room 195.
Past presentation topics have included:
- “The Effect of the Process of Democratization on Women: Brazil and South Africa” (Kira Schwartz, ’14)
- “Assessing HIV Risk Denial and Condom Use Among Black Inner-City Women” (Madeline Montgomery, ’12)
- “The Picture of Dorian Gray”
