Prominent scholars, artists, and activists will be visiting the Dartmouth College campus during the Spring 2013 term for a series of seminars, debates, panel discussions, and public lectures.
In conjunction with the Seeds of Change lecture series, the Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth (GRID) will run a pilot research seminar on the synergies between gender, scholarship, and social change. GRID will bring together a group of interested Dartmouth faculty, professional staff, graduate and undergraduate students from the different academic divisions and professional schools to engage in interdisciplinary debate and study concerning issues of gender and social activism. This spring's lecture series and research institute are made possible with generous funding from the office of President Carol Folt.
