UM College of Humanities and Sciences to Host Dialogue on Gender

April 03, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana College of Humanities and Sciences will host “Gender in Everyday Life: A Dialogue in Humanities and Sciences” at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, April 24, in Interdisciplinary Sciences Building Room 110.

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of woman suffrage in Montana, communication studies Professor Sara Hayden and anthropology Professor Kimber McKay will examine the ways in which gender identities and assumptions shape daily experiences in a variety of places and contexts. The dialogue will be moderated by Women’s and Gender Studies Program Co-Chair Anya Jabour.

“The Women’s and Gender Studies Program has been part of the College of Humanities and Sciences for nearly 30 years,” said Chris Comer, dean of the college. “They continue to contribute in significant ways to the discussions of equity and diversity on our campus and in the greater community. It is wonderful to have them shaping the dialogue in this historic year for women’s rights in Montana.” 

The event is free and open to the public, and a light reception will follow. For more information call Ian Withrow, media and information coordinator with the College of Humanities and Sciences, at 406-243-2683 or email ian.withrow@mso.umt.edu.
