Gender Studies Symposium

The 34th Annual Gender Studies Symposium explored a dual theme, illuminating the many ways in which gender and sexuality shape the foundational processes of production and consumption—and vice versa.

Academics, students, community leaders, activists, artists, and visionaries joined together to examine topics ranging from the way ethical consumerism has been prioritized in contemporary feminist and LGBTQ circles; to the challenges of defining and creating empowering art and media; to the commodification of patients’ bodies and emotions in health and medicine; to the gendered economies in making, procuring, and consuming food.

Our goal was to investigate the complex interaction of production, consumption, gender, and sexuality—perhaps generating more questions than answers.

All symposium lectures, sessions and the art show are free and open to the public.
