On Friday April 15, West Chester students from Dr. Mandelia’s “Transnational Feminism” class will be hosting the 2011 Student Conference on Transnational Feminism. The title of the conference is “Intersecting Global Identities: Women in a Transnational World.” The conference will take place from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the Sykes theatre.

Students have been in charge of planning the conference. The class was separated into different groups including publicity, program, schedule, and website. Each group has a different task.

While Dr. Mandelia guided the class through the process of creating the conference, she made sure to let her students know that the success of the conference would come out of the work they put into the conference.

The students in the class are in charge of preparing and running the conference.

The class contacted around 50 different universities with Women & Gender Studies programs in hopes of a good turnout.

Rebekah Balmer is a fourth-year student majoring in women’s and gender studies and sociology . She can be reached at
