WGS Research Seminar

WGS2000H WGS Research Seminar

The seminar is scheduled monthly on a Wednesday, from 4:00–6:00 p.m.

All Ph.D. students will be required to enroll in WGS2000H, “Research Seminar in Women and Gender Studies,” a credit/non-credit course (which does not count toward the program requirement FCEs) that functions as the WGSI colloquium. Normally, students will enroll in the first year of their Ph.D. program when they are completing coursework.  Ph.D. students are required to attend 80% of the seminars in that year (an attendance sheet is circulated).  The WGS Research Seminar is scheduled monthly on a Wednesday, from 4-6 p.m.  After completion of this course, we recommend students regularly attend this seminar as a crucial part of their graduate education.

All Ph.D. students are required to present their dissertation research in the seminar at least once before graduating.  Please contact the Graduate Coordinator to arrange your presentation.

The WGS Research Seminar is a monthly forum for interdisciplinary research in feminist and gender studies. Directed at both faculty and graduate students within the WGSI and across the campus as a whole, the seminar’s goal is to foster intellectual engagement with key theoretical, social and political questions touching on gender and feminism and their many intersections through the presentation of cutting-edge work by leading researchers both within and beyond the University of Toronto.
