Launch of Digital Archive                                                    Monday, April 12, 2021, 5:45 pm                                                                      

Have you written an essay, a piece of creative writing, or created an art project that explores gender and sexuality themes? Consider submitting your project to the archive. Students are highly encouraged to transform standard academic essays into one of the following presentation formats prior to submitting: 

–       An informative blog post, video blog (vlog) presentation, or podcast that communicates the key points of your academic paper for a public audience. 

–       A photo essay that could be inspired by a previously written academic research paper or developed as a stand-alone project.

–       Creative writing projects that clearly center around WGSS themes.

–       Work in the creative arts, including art, film, theater, dance, and music, that can be effectively shared through digital media and that clearly centers around WGSS themes.

By privileging these digital mediums, we aim to decenter the dominance of written word and make scholarly conversations more accessible. While student submissions must be intellectually rigorous and creative, they do not necessarily have to reproduce the dominant modes of academic writing and discourse. Please direct all questions to project leaders, Professors Sandra Lee, Meagan Tripp, and Rachel Feldman, using this dedicated email address: wgss.archive@fandm.edu

Please submit your work here by March 19, 2021. The platform will be launched on April 12 at 5:45pm, with a Zoom event open to the entire CPC community. 

A direct link to the application form can be found here and on the F&M WGSS website: www.fandm.edu/wgs.

For any questions, please email wgss.archive@fandm.edu
