Spend 4C15 with Feminists

4C15 approaches, and there are an unprecedented number of incredible sounding sessions and events on the docket. In fact, it is a near-impossible task to choose just one per time slot. That's where the Coalition can help.

3/18: Spend the day (9-5) at the Feminist Workshop in the Tampa Convention Center, Room 5. This year's theme is "Teaching, Service, and the Material Conditions of Labor." Participants will work to identify ways they can and do engage in feminist labor within academia. First Level Co-Chairs include Lauren Connolly, Jennifer Nish, April Cobos, Patty Wilde, April Conway, Lydia McDermott, Roseanne Gatto, Shannon Mondor, Moushumi Biswas, Emma Howes, Alison A. Lukowski, Nicole Khoury, and Lauren Rosenberg. Speakers include Dawn Opel, Liz Egen, Jessica Philbrook, Dara Regaignon, Jennifer Heinert, Cassandra Phillips, Shelley Hawthorne Smith, and Michele Lockhart, Kathleen Mollick.

The letters CWS, HRC, and NWS are stacked on top of each other at the center of this image. The phrase "CCCC 2015" runs sideways along the left-hand side; the names of NWS speakers are listed (also sideways) on the right.
