High school students from around the region will meet every Friday in March to discuss the significance of gender in American society. Seminar discussions will examine how gender roles have evolved through time and how they are changing in the United States today. Students will also examine contemporary portrayals of gender in three documentary films. An important outcome of the seminars for students will be self-produced digital media productions – video and audio – through which they express their own thinking about ideas and practices of gender. Student productions will be presented to the public on April 8. The seminar leader is Simone Puff, professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Syracuse University, joined by Molly Jessup, curator of education for Oneida Community Mansion House.
Students: $35 for the entire series (five meetings). Registration open to all high school students.
