Gender to a Tea

Gender to a Tea is a series designed to help gender-focused researchers by fielding questions from attendees about the presenters’ ongoing, unpublished research.

Our Gender to a Tea series gives faculty the opportunity to discuss their unpublished, gender-focused research and to field questions from attendees.

All presentations are from Noon-1 pm in Bate 1006.
