Women’s Studies Hosts Boyer Memorial Lecture and Reception
Center for Women's Studies & Gender Research, Ethnic Studies | October 07, 2015
The Center for Women’s Studies & Gender Research (CWSGR) is proud to present the 15th annual Boyer Memorial Lecture Series this October. The Boyer lecture and reception takes place every fall semester to honor the recipients of the Harriet Patsy Boyer Scholarship and to showcase the scholarly research of a woman faculty member on campus. The lecture and scholarship are named for Dr. Patsy Boyer, who retired as Professor Emerita from the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures in 1997. This event brings together students, staff, and faculty in celebration of women’s achievements at Colorado State University.
The Boyer Scholarship Award was established to increase opportunities for students to participate in scholarly activities that promote new understanding of women in culture and society. CWSGR annually awards up to six $3,000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing Women’s Interdisciplinary Studies at Colorado State University. The students who receive the award must demonstrate a commitment to women’s issues through academic study and participation in campus and community activities.
Courtenay W. Daum, Associate Professor in the Political Science Department at CSU, was selected to present her research at this year’s event. Her talk is entitled “The War on Solicitation and Intersectional Subjection: How quality of life policing is used as a tool to control transgender populations.”
