Honors Colloquium: Reimagining Gender: Voices, Power, Action

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? 


This week: Contemporary Black Women Artists: Intertextuality and Counter-Narratives, Claudia Rankine. Award-winning poet, essayist, playwright, and 2016 MacArthur Fellow.
