WGS and kinesiology

Dr. Dianne Gill, in the second year of her term as the Linda Arnold Carlisle Distinguished Excellence Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies, announces a lecture series.

“That professorship supports research and also provides for a lecture each year. Last year, the lecture focused on our ongoing research on Physical Activity and Quality of Life. This year, the lecture highlights connections between Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) and my home department of kinesiology.” she says.

“I am pleased that this year’s lecture is a series with three invited guest presenters. Each of these three women is a noted scholar who makes the connection between WGS and kinesiology in her scholarship and professional work.”
