Appalachian State University will hold a series of lectures during the fall semester focusing on women’s and gender studies.
Director of University News, Jane Nichols said the series will be called, “Distinguished Lectures on Women, Sex, and Gender.”
Nichols explained the lecture series will feature talks by scholars from different disciplines who will discuss issues like teenage girls and internet predators, women and careers in information technology, men and masculinity in today’s job market, rap and binge drinking on college campuses and the “gender” of school shootings.
According to Nichols, the presentations will be held almost every Thursday evening starting this week through late November.
Nichols reported the sessions begin at 5:00 p.m. in Room 114 of the Belk Library and Information Commons. The lectures are expected to last about an hour and 15 minutes, and are free and open to the public.
