The Women & Leadership Archives is pleased to provide interested faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students with this forum to highlight interdisciplinary scholarship on women and gender. This is a unique opportunity for individuals to present their work to their colleagues in a comfortable and encouraging setting.
Presentations take place once a month on weekday afternoons for an hour. Dates for presentations are flexible and all are brown bag lunch optional. Presenters are expected to speak for approximately thirty to forty minutes, with the remaining time devoted to a discussion of the work.
We hold open submissions throughout the year, and have presentation slots available for the 2011-2012 academic calendars. We welcome students and faculty from any discipline and any department at Loyola. A highlight of our diverse past presenters is available below.
Interested parties should submit a one-page abstract to the Women & Leadership Archives email@example.com or Beth Loch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts need to include a description of the paper, a summary of the argument, and any additional materials needed to present, i.e. projector, VCR, power-point hook up, Internet.
