The Department of Gender & Women's Studies at the University of Kentucky is proud to host the first annual Kentucky Gender & Women's Studies Conference (KYGWS).

Organized by GWS doctoral students, the KYGWS conference will provide attendees with a chance to connect with, learn from, and strengthen solidarities with one another. We seek to give students and faculty an opportunity to transform their lived experience or classroom study into illuminating analysis or applied research that can pave the way for greater understanding of marginalized individuals, disadvantaged communities, and/or cultural differences.

In addition to creating a space for undergraduate and graduate students to practice and acquire skills for further conference presentations, the KYGWS conference will allow attendees to meet and learn from other students from diverse worldviews and cultures. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to present their research, but we also invite students to attend the conference to be in community and conversation with scholars of all levels.
