2021 WGSS Research Symposium
The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program’s annual Symposium features research and creative work from undergraduate and graduate students at BGSU. In the past, this program has been organized as a one-day, in-person conference; however, COVID-19 has asked us to think outside the box. It just so happens that WGSS scholars are particularly fantastic at thinking outside the box!
Our virtual symposium promises to bring our stellar student research and creative projects to a much wider audience and facilitate public dialogue about diverse women’s lived experiences. In honor of Women's History Month, the theme will be "WomXn: Intersections, Margins and Centers."
This year, students will submit their project for judging by a panel of faculty for our cash prizes (1st place is $150, 2nd place is $100 and 3rd place $75 in each category (research and creative). Students will ALSO submit a one- to two-minute video summary of their research to post on our Virtual Symposium space.
The public is invited to view the videos, and post comments and questions as desired, and then VOTE on their favorite research or creative piece.
The undergraduate and graduate student winners of the public vote will win the $300 grand prize: The People’s Choice Public Scholarship award.
Awards will be announced before the WGSS Symposium Keynote address with Dr. Lady J on March 25 at 4:30 p.m.
