Women at work will be theme of this year’s Gender Week: Gender Matters @ UB, a series of more than 20 lectures, panels and other events from Sept. 21-25 that will highlight the wide range of gender-inclusive and sex-specific scholarship being done at UB and by visiting scholars.

Gender Week activities range from a workshop on how to get published in peer-reviewed academic journals as a graduate student or junior faculty member to a screening and discussion of the film “The Naked Feminist,” an award-winning documentary about feminist women working in the American pornography industry.

On Tuesday, former UB professor Susan Hanson, a faculty member at Clark University in Massachusetts and a past president of the Association of American Geographers, will deliver a keynote address titled, “Gender and Mobility: Implications for Sustainability.”
