More good gender econ from Rochester

So they have a graduate gender conference every year. It was a real shame to miss this year's because it was focused on labor.

The conference schedule is below. As I imagine happens with a lot of women's studies conferences, it's a lot of humanities or pomo type social theory. There was at least one economist there. As you know, that's not my style at all but pluralism is still good. Rather than shy away from that sort of thing, I think mixing it up with the more formal social science would probably be healthy.

Anyway - here's the conference schedule from this year with all kinds of funky formatting copying that I am not going to fix at 1:40 in the morning:
