Student panel accepted to conference
A panel of Denison students, including Hollie Davis '17, Hannah Goldman '17, Liza Haggenjos '17, Anna Teye '16, and Aubrey Vasquez '17, was accepted into a conference “Race, Class, Gender, Sexuality Symposium: Gendered Bodies/Gendered Lives” that took place at Wright State University on Feb. 19, 2016.
The student papers were: Hollie Davis: “Colorism: Understanding the Limitations on Black Femininity,” Hannah Goldman: “Free to Be You and Me: Embodying Twinhood,” Liza Haggenjos: “Empowerment through Birth Control,” Anna Teye: “Decolonializing Knowledge,” and Aubrey Vasquez: “Buying Adulthood in a Jar.”
The theme of the conference built around a quote by
Maurice Merleau-Ponty, who once said, “The body is our general medium for having a world.” It is also the general medium through which the world has us. This conference will explore diverse embodiments and the various meanings made of them, and how bodies shape both experience and access to justice, equity, and well-being.
