Call for Submissions: Feminist Theory Lecture Series

Loyola’s Women’s Studies and Gender Studies (WSGS) program is launching a monthly lecture lunch series for the Loyola community. This is a great chance to discuss your work in the Philosophy department and make connections with those studying feminist theory across disciplines. From WSGS:

In the spirit of community consciousness-raising groups of the 1970s, WSGS aims to create a space where community members facilitate dialogues and learn more from each other essential topics of contemporary feminism.

Each selected presenter will give a lecture and/or presentation for up to 30 minutes. They may choose to do a Q&A or provide questions for group conversation following their lecture.

We are seeking submissions from current and former graduate students, undergraduate students, faculty, and staff. People of all disciplines are welcome to submit, as long as there is a feminist theoretical framework or methodology. Submit an application via our Google Form by October 31 at 6 p.m. E-mail WSGS graduate assistant Keisa Reynolds at with any questions.

The monthly series will occur every third Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. in the WSGS suite (Crown Center, Room 116) at the Lake Shore Campus. The dates for Spring 2018 semester are January 17, February 21, March 21, and April 18. Refreshments will be provided by the WSGS program. Please feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch.

Register for Undocumented Student Ally Training

From Loyola’s Share the DREAM: Undocumented Student Ally Training program:

The Share the DREAM Undocumented Student Ally Trainings provide the Loyola community with skills to understand the value and importance of exploring the experiences and perspectives of undocumented students; they aim to generate knowledge for self-learning; and they increase on-campus support for and the inclusion of undocumented students. Upon completing the training, trainees receive a placard that recognizes them as allies and as points of support for undocumented students on campus. The goal is that participants display these placards in their work area to invite questions and/or dialogue about the issues that impact this community.

The next training sessions for the Fall 2017 semester are:

Thursday, October 12th, 12-2PM (Water Tower Campus)
Tuesday, November 7th, 12-2PM (Lake Shore Campus)
