Upcoming Lectures


The Spring 2018 series carries the simple title

"Exploring ..."

We will turn our attention to a number of topics that excited our curiosity and which, we hope, will whet your appetite for some more thoughtful, original and provocative lectures brought to you by WomenExplore:

We will investigate "White Privilege" and "Gender Bias", find out what "Constellation Work" is, look at the ethics of manipulating DNA, and more.
