Women in Politics Conference

Scholarly Workshop

Friday, April 11, 2014
10:00 AM
Baker Center Toyota Auditorium

On Friday, the scholars who participated in the public roundtable, faculty and graduate students at UT, and other scholars from universities throughout the southeast will participate in a research workshop. The workshop will involve a series of small panels in which several people will present working papers related to the theme of gender and politics and other participants will provide feedback.

Topics for the scholarly panels include: comparative perspectives on the election of female officeholders; the connections between mass public opinion and women’s political representation; and politics at the intersection of race, gender, and ethnicity.

The workshop will be an excellent opportunity for UT’s faculty and graduate students and the invited guests to receive and offer feedback on their ongoing research.
