"Asserting Our Value(s): Women's Studies in the 21st Century"

Women's Studies and Women's Centers have recently and increasingly come under attack, fending off closures, downsized curriculum and services, and loss of faculty and staff positions. Designed for faculty, administrators, and other WS/WC practitioners, this conference explores strategies for asserting our worth and necessity in the face of these setbacks.

Suggested topics:                
advocating for resources
developing alliances across the university                
community partnerships
marketing programs and events
budgeting and fundraising
feminist leadership within and beyond WS

Direct questions or abstracts to Karen Weekes, kweekes@psu.edu. Abstracts for panels, workshops, or individual presentations should be sent as attachment (Word preferred) with subject "MAWSA 12 proposal."
