The Center for Race and Gender hosts the CRG Thursday Forum Series featuring presentations from faculty, fellows, and students on emerging research on race, gender, and their intersections.  Forum presentations represent a broad landscape of ideas, topics, and disciplinary approaches, and are great opportunities to engage in discussions about new research or share scholarly work for community feedback.

Forums* take place on Thursdays at 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm in the CRG Conference Room in 691 Barrows Hall, unless otherwise noted. Forums are open to the public and the location is wheelchair accessible. Light refreshments are served.
