Featuring WGS faculty and womens center staff who lead programs in Europe, Senegal, South Africa, and New Zealand, panelists will discuss the benefits for students analyzing issues of gender, race, and sexuality in a global perspective while being immersed in a culture other than their own, as well as the difficulties WGSE students face when conducting cross-cultural research, specifically focusing on students' tendency to search for the familiar in the unfamiliar.
