We’re so pleased that the NewsCenter at the University worked with us to put together an article reporting on the 10th annual (en)Gendered exhibit “Between Identities and Environments.” (en)Gendered guest of honor and juror, Rachel Haidu, said this year’s theme presented “a way to think about how we ought to complicate ideas of gender beyond one context. … The submissions broaden the scope of what gender might mean within a range of environments—from the Rochester campus to the virtual realm.” So many of the pieces in the show this year were thoughtful reflections and responses to the theme. Thanks again to all of the undergraduate students who submitted. Please keep sharing your wonderful ideas with us in the future – we (and the rest of the UR community) love to see your work!
