Thanks to a late increase in funding from the U.S. Department of Education, CGS will be able to offer several supplementary FLAS fellowships to support graduate and undergraduate study in academic year 2019-20. This competition will be held in the fall of 2019 (with an application deadline of October 15) and will be a one-time supplement to the regular competition that was held in January of 2019.  If you have applied last January but were not awarded a FLAS, we encourage you to re-submit your application for these supplementary awards. New applicants are also welcome.

Reflections of a Jerusalem Correspondent
September 9, 5pm 
Cohen Center for Jewish Life, 503 E. John St.

12th Annual Balgopal Lecture: The Radical Potential of Mothering During the Arab Spring Revolutions
September 12, 4pm 
114 David Kinley Hall

Based on ethnographic research with women who participated in the Arab Spring revolution in Cairo, Egypt, this talk will seek to “unsentimentalize mothering” by exploring its radical potentials within the context of revolution. Naber will also provide a critique of the liberal feminist tendency to theorize motherhood as inherently oppressive and lacking in possibilities for resistance, agency, and power.
