Annual WGSX Colloquium

The first annual Women Studies colloquium was held March 22-24, 2000. With the support of the Alice McLellan Birney Women Studies Fund, the cross-disciplinary study area in Women, Gender, & Sexuality presents a colloquium each spring in connection with Women's History Month. Please explore below for past and future events and join us each spring as we bring together speakers on a variety of topics related to women and gender.


Last Colloquium Topic

15th Annual Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Colloquium

“Overworked and Underpaid: Gendered Labor in the 21st Century”

March 25-27, 2014

Over the past fourteen years, the WGSX Colloquium has become an established tradition at St. Mary’s College.  This very successful annual program has regularly drawn large audiences to events that have offered powerful interdisciplinary combinations of scholarly discourse and artistic expression (including film screenings, theatrical performances, and exhibitions) to discuss a topic critical to the lives of women.

The colloquium featured Dr. Mary Hawkesworth (Women Studies and Political Science at Rutgers University and editor of Signs), Dr. Maliha Safri (Economics at Drew University), and a retrospective of the first 15 years of colloquium topics featuring the art designs of Jim Gallagher (who designs our colloquium posters).
