Please Mark Your Calendars for Gensler 2015

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Dear Members of the Middlebury Community,

The mass incarceration of Black and Latina/o populations and the punitive policing of poor communities is one of the most important issues the United States faces today. In order to promote campus conversations about these issues, the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies and the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity are co-sponsoring the annual Gensler symposium with the theme of “Punishing Bodies: Feminist Responses to the Carceral State.”

The symposium brings a very exciting line up of speakers and events to campus culminating in an all day conference on April 17th with internationally recognized scholars speaking on everything from policing migrant communities to the embodiment of masculinities in Chicago gangs.

We encourage you to mark your calendars now. You can find out more at the symposium website: go/gensler2015

Please contact us if you have any questions or ideas regarding this year’s theme.

Laurie and Roberto

Laurie Essig, Director Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies
