Brown Bags

Every Tuesday, at 11:30 a.m., we host an informal lunch at the Center for Women's Studies during which professors, students, or visiting speakers present on myriad topics involving gender and sexuality.

Annual Local History Trip

Every year, the Women’s Studies Program organizes a daylong trip to Seneca Falls, the Harriet Tubman Home, and other sites in Central NY, in commemoration of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, the first women’s rights convention held in the United States. In the past, participants have visited the Women’s Rights National Historic Park and the homes of Harriet Tubman and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Please e-mail the Women's Studies Program Coordinator, if you're interested in learning more or attending!

Allegorical Athena

The Allegorical Athena is the Women’s Studies annual literary magazine. Since 1996, the Allegorical Athena has included original gender-focused work from the Colgate community. Submissions include artwork, photography, literature, poetry, and prose with each work providing a unique perspective on the intersections of gender, sexuality, and other identities.
