Women’s and gender studies seniors at UCLA’s Thinking Gender conference

This month, four women’s and gender studies seniors got a taste of graduate-level academic life at UCLA’s 27th Annual Thinking Gender Graduate Student Research Conference, Imagining Reparations. McKenzie Coe ’17, Anisha Karur ’17, Laylee Davalou ’17 and Anastasia Rivera-Hackley ’17 (pictured) attended the two-day event with their professor, Sina Kramer.

The academic conference explored the intersection of violence and reparative justice as shaped by experiences of gender, sexuality, race, class, etc. – and considered an intersectional approach to imagining reparations.
