New Faculty Reception
GWST and the WFN welcome new faculty and post-docs to UMBC!
The Department of Gender and Women’s Studies and the Women's Faculty Network would like to invite all new faculty and post-docs to join us on November 3, 2017 from 2-3:30pm for our new faculty reception in Fine Arts 427. This will be an opportunity for new faculty and post-docs to get to know one another, network across disciplines, and learn about opportunities to get involved in the Gender and Women's Studies community at UMBC. The Women's Faculty Network is one such opportunity.
The WFN supports the recruitment and advancement of all CAHSS faculty who identify as women in a range of ways, including advocacy, mentorship at key junctures in their careers, and creating spaces for social connection. GWST also has a number of affiliate faculty and crosslisted courses in departments across campus, so if your research is at all related to gender, feminism, and/or sexuality studies, we hope you'll come by to learn about the many opportunities we have to get involved. We will also hear microtalks from a few UMBC faculty members, including Jessica Berman (English), Kate Drabinski (Gender and Women’s Studies), and Susan McDonough (History).
