The Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies (CWGS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) offer a lecture series on Wednesday afternoons for the fall and winter semesters. This series brings together scholars that focus on issues related to women and the study of gender/sexuality. The series includes post doctoral and visiting scholars, faculty both from CWGS and additional departments who are engaging in research that is relevant to the mission of the centre. In collaboration with CWGS and the Women’s and Gender Studies Librarian, the lecture series is being recorded and offered to the public as podcasts.
