Professor discusses gender discrimination in academics

An examination of gender discrimination in academic environments will be the topic of Pittsburg State University’s next Tilford Group Lecture Series.

Scheduled to commemorate Women’s History Month, the lecture by Dr. Browyn Conrad, associate professor of sociology and director of the Women’s Studies Program at PSU, will focus on the types of gender discrimination and its repercussions through “Gender Discrimination in Academe: Its Forms and Consequences.” The lecture will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, in the Governor’s Room of the Student Center.

Conrad specializes in gender and social movements and teaches courses in racial-ethnic, socio-economic and gender-based inequalities, sexualities, and global women’s issues.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
