DESCRIPTION

The School of Culture, Gender & Social Justice (SCGSJ), in conjunction with the Department of English, the Social Justice Research Center, the Committee on Women and People of Color, and the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice, will host the inaugural Community Conversations: Scholarship and Research Symposium on Culture, Gender & Social Justice.

This Symposium will take place at the University of Wyoming on September 20-21, 2018. The purpose of the Symposium is to provide those throughout the University and in the larger Laramie and Wyoming communities who do research, scholarly work, and creative activity related to culture, gender and social justice the opportunity to come together as a scholarly community. This free symposium will provide a forum for scholars in this area to share and showcase their work, to learn about and from the work of others within the community, and to gain support for their scholarship, research, and creative endeavors. A main goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for robust discussion and collaboration, where constructive feedback can be provided to participants who so desire. In conjunction with the Symposium, the SCGSJ will also be launching an online journal where work of Symposium participants may be published. The online journal welcomes scholarly papers as well as creative endeavors and reports on community action, including those that are holistic and multimodal.
