Politics of Gender & Justice Conference Class Trip

November 29, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

A grant from the Foundation covered the cost of bus transportation for Dr. Anderson’s students to attend the Politics of Gender & Justice Conference at GMU.  Here’s more information about the field trip the school’s blog:

“On November 16th, MLWGS’s Dr. Christine Anderson took students from her Gender, Politics & Consumerism in a Global Context VCU/Dual Enrollment class and other select students to a one-day conference at George Mason University. At the conference, hosted by the Women and Gender Studies Program at GMU, they brought together scholars, students (both graduate and undergraduate), policymakers, artists, and activists to wrestle with ideas and strategies to move forward toward a just world in theory and practice.  These students heard from keynote speaker Talitha LeFloria, the award-winning author of ‘Chained in Silence: Black Women and Convict Labor in the New South.’

Eleven of Dr. Anderson’s seniors presented their own research during this conference.”
