Honors Colloquium: Reimagining Gender: Voices, Power, Action

New ways of thinking about gender dominate our culture and politics today. At this pivotal moment in time, what is the (renewed) relevance of gender in shaping human rights in an increasingly diverse world?  How do gender identities connect with other dimensions of inequality?  And how is our rising consciousness about gender leading to vibrant social conversations, rearrangements of power, and new possibilities? 

Reimagining Gender: Voices, Power, Action will be the topic of our 2018 Honors Colloquium.  We will present speakers who have emerged as key voices in focusing, redirecting, and leading us toward new ways of addressing these questions. Please join us in this conversation.


This week: Transgender Identity and Resistance: The Power of Story, Jennifer Finney Boylan. Author, activist, and inaugural Anna Quindlen Writer in Residence at Barnard College, Columbia University.
