Drafting Stages Series

Join professor Gina Athena Ulysse, Feminist Studies Department, in a series of intimate conversations with speakers working inside and outside of academia and at different points in their careers about writing as an evolving and non-linear process. Focusing on conditions, inspirations, and methods, each speaker will offer personal insight into their processes and the messiness and vulnerabilities of drafting stages.

Graduate students from all disciplines are welcome!
