Undergraduate Conference for Gender, Sexuality, Women’s Studies

Celebrate Susan B. Anthony’s birthday at SBAI’s annual Undergraduate Research Conference featuring presentations by students nominated for their remarkable work in Gender, Sexuality, and/or Women’s Studies.

Our 2017 keynote speaker is Douglas Crimp, Fanny Knapp Allen Professor of Art History, Professor of Art History and Visual and Cultural Studies. Crimp will discuss his recently published book “Before Pictures”. Part biography and part cultural history, this book tells the story of Crimp’s life as a young gay man and art critic in New York City during the late 1960s through the turbulent 1970s.
