The 2022 conference is held in honor of our beloved colleague Bren Murphy, Professor Emerita of Communication and Women’s and Gender Studies at LUC, who left us too soon. The issues we wish to discuss were dear to her heart and ours.

Dr. Bren Adair Ortega-Murphy, Professor Emerita, inspired and mentored countless students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends during her 36-year career at Loyola, holding a joint appointment in the School of Communication and the Women’s Studies and Gender Studies Program. Contributions to the Bren Ortega Murphy Memorial Scholarship at Loyola University Chicago are appreciated.
