The Critical Race and Gender Studies Working Group facilitates a spirit of intellectual community among faculty and graduate students conducting research on various aspects of race and gender in literature, film, and cultural studies. The intentions of the group are to enrich the research of the participants by including a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the role of race and gender in the humanities. In addition to reading and discussing articles and books, we also host guest speakers and share works-in-progress (article drafts, job talks, etc.). We meet twice per semester.
