Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University will host "An Evening in Politics: Gender in Public Policies" from 7-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 24 in the Faculty Lounge on the third floor of Webb Hall. The event is co-sponsored by the Department of Political Science, Geography and Philosophy, the Latin American Studies Program and the Gender Studies Program. Free pizza will be provided.
Topics that will be discussed include public policies aimed at supporting vulnerable groups, such as Food Stamps in the United States and Cash Transfers in Latin America, and how they do not necessarily take into account a gender perspective in their design and implementation. Professor Nora Nagels of the Université de Montréal, Professor Nicole Krassas of Eastern and Eastern students will discuss these different perspectives. The event will be moderated by Professor Martin Mendoza-Botelho.
