Women's Studies Summer Institute

In 1988 we offered our first Summer Institute at Harbour Centre on Women, Life and the Planet with Vandana Shiva, an international scholar, environmentalist and feminist.

Our second Summer Institute was held in 1999 on Standpoint Theory through the Work of Dorothy Smith.

During the Summer of 2002, our third Summer Institute, Poetry Matters, included a gathering of local poets.  

The fourth Summer Institute (2004) was organized by Dr. Sue Wilkinson, "International interdisciplinary conference on Gender Sexuality and Health"
