History and Gender at the University of Georgia
Welcome Workshop People
The History and Gender Workshop sponsors a variety of activities and events. At least once a semester, we invite an eminent visiting scholar to campus to present a guest lecture. These events are open to everyone and are often part of the “Blue Card” events program.

Additionally, we host events specifically for faculty members and graduate students. These include presentations of new research intended for publication and professional development workshops. For research presentations, we pre-circulate the author’s writing ahead of time so that participants can provide thoughtful and constructive feedback. Faculty and graduate students from across campus are encouraged to attend these events.
