Ad-Hoc Research Grants to Students in 2011

For the second year in a row, the Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies program sent graduate students to Duke University’s annual spring feminist theory workshop which featured presentations by well-known gender and sexuality scholars. The graduate students whose travel and lodging we funded included:

  • Kate Aid (Comparative Literature)
  • Kamila Alexander (Nursing)
  • Sarah Dowling (English)
  • Greta Lynn (English)
  • Melanie Micir (English)

Duke’s workshop offers a unique opportunity for recognized faculty and young scholars to engage in sustained dialogue about feminist theory as a scholarly domain of inquiry.
