Students' creative works exploring issues of gender identity, dynamics, oppression and empowerment will be the focus of an exhibition and competition hosted by the Gender and Women's Studies Program at The University of Texas-Pan American.
A panel of judges will select the best submissions to be exhibited in the Charles and Dorothy Clark Gallery located in COAS Building's first floor. The top three will receive cash prizes totaling $600 awarded by the Gender and Women's Studies Program from the Lee Davinroy Fund.
An additional prize will be awarded for the creation of a logo for the program subject to the acceptance by the Gender and Women's Studies Committee. The logo award is $200.
The award ceremony and reception will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Oct. 9 in the Charles and Dorothy Clark Gallery, where the exhibit will be on display until Oct. 19.
All submitted work must be accompanied by a prospectus and be ready to hang/exhibit in the gallery. Creative writing should be framed. For audio/visual work, necessary equipment for exhibition must be provided.
The Gender and Women's Studies program provides interdisciplinary and global study of the history and theory of women, men, gender, sexuality, and other related topics through a minor or undergraduate certificate program.
The program's coursework and service learning opportunities provide students with skills to think in a flexible, internationally sensitive way and work and communicate with people across diverse fields. These skills are becoming more crucial in the 21st century and provide its students a greater ability to compete worldwide in their chosen careers.
