The Department of History's Graduate Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality presents an important panel discussion of reproductive rights and gender/sexual identities on campus and in academia:

"Reading, Writing, and Reproducing: The Challenges Women Face in the Ivory Tower"

A Panel Discussion by:

Jessica Luther
Ph.D. Candidate in History and Scholar Activist, UT Austin

Leah Deane

Ph.D. Candidate in History and Scholar Activist, UT Austin

Dr. Jacqueline Jones
Walter Prescott Webb Chair in History, Ideas and the Mastin Gentry White Professor of Southern History, UT Austin

Dr. Barbara Krauthamer
Assistant Professor, The University of Massachusetts Amherst,
and Visiting Research Fellow, Institute for Historical Studies, UT Austin

How does the current crisis on reproductive rights impact graduate students on campus? What other urgent issues do graduate students face in the current political context? What are the challenges of being in a heteronormative environment in the field of academia? What problems have women scholars faced historically in academia? We invite you all to come to not only share your point of view on these important issues that we face in academia, but also since this is our last gender symposium we are interested if you have any thoughts for next year. Come partake in a lively conversation!

The Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality has been a fixture in Department of History since 2001, offering a forum for graduate students and faculty to present papers and works-in-progress for discussion in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.

Refreshments will be provided. No RSVP needed; free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Program Coordinators Valerie Ann Martinez (vamartinez@utexas.edu) and Allison "Alley" Schottenstein (alleys@utexas.edu).
