Take Note

TCP dialogue on gender opens

Learn about Emory when it was an all-male institution (1836-1953), the process of becoming a co-educational institution, and the complexities of Emory’s gendered story as it intersects with race, class, nationality and ability.

The Transforming Community Project and the Center for Women have launched the newest TCP dialogue group on gender.

This group will collaboratively explore and discuss the gendered past, present and future of Emory. It begins by exploring terminology and concepts that challenge participants to think critically about gender, including a shift away from the gender binary of masculine and feminine, questions about power, issues of violence and more. Primary and secondary source readings, art, videos and guest speakers are part of the project.

The semester will culminate with a group-developed community action project. 

The dialogue group will meet weekly, except during spring break, on Thursdays, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in Room 363 of the Dobbs University Center; a light snack will be provided.

The group is open to students, staff, faculty, administrators and alumni. There is no fee for participation or materials. 

Registration deadline is March 1. Register via Survey Monkey. Participants will be notified by 5 p.m. on March 2.

For registration questions or other information, contact the TCP office at 404.727.6198.
