Join us to celebrate Susan B. Anthony's Birthday during our annual Undergraduate Research Conference! The schedule is full of fantastic student research on Gender, Sexuality, and 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 biographical 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. Enjoy coffee during the morning poster session and have some lunch during Professor Crimp's talk. We hope to see you there.
