Feminist Intellectual Reception

Posted on May 8, 2021
As Citizen TALES Commons members, we joined “Feminist Intellectual Reception” by the Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies (GCWS) at More Than Words Bookstore in Boston on September 26th, 2019.
Established officially in 1992, the consortium’s current host insitution is MIT and its mission is to cultivate collaborative intellectual communities across fields and disciplines, support innovative pedagogical practices, contribute to the professional development of students and faculty, provide a sustainable model of institutional collaboration, explore the intersection of power and identity with an emphasis on gender, race, ethnicity, class, nationality, religion and language.
At the reception, the program manager introduced some significant courses and upcoming lectures in this fall term. Following this, participants discussed several current critical topics and issues on women and gender in their own fields and exchanged their knowledge on recent research studies, projects, publications, etc.
As Citizen TALES Commons members, we introduced our collective scholarly project to participants, invited them to our upcoming events and our NeMLA seminar at Boston University in March 2020, discussed some possible collaboration on women, gender, race issues revolving around citizenship in today’s US and in the global, multicultural world.
