2019 EGSA GWU Symposium: "Passing"

Narratives of "passing" grapple with questions of how bodies might move through space, and what the personal, social, and cultural implications of that "passage" might be. Graduate students from GWU and consortium universities will present work on this topic, followed by our keynote speaker, Patricia Akhimie (Rutgers University-Newark) who will share research from her current book project Leaving Home: Early Modern Women's Travel. We will also feature for the first time a special panel of undergraduate presenters.
