Each semester the Department sponsors a brown bag series at which speakers present their research and engage the audience in discussion about the topic. The topics vary, as do the disciplines of the speakers and the points of view they represent. These informal settings provide unique and wonderful opportunities to learn about the range of Women's and Gender Studies scholarship and to meet students and faculty with similar interests.
About this talk: Menstruation is a normal biological process experienced by millions of women around the world on a monthly basis. While menstrual hygiene has been receiving increasing attention as a public health and human rights issue globally, in the U.S. attention to this issue is still lacking. Dr. Sebert Kuhlmann will present her research on period poverty, focusing on the situation in schools and implications for how we address the issue.
