In April 2019, “What is a Feminist Lab?” Symposium was held at the University of Colorado Boulder and organized by Maya Livio, Lori Emerson, and Thea Lindquist. The event included a range of speakers from interdisciplinary research labs and explored ways in which intersectional feminist approaches can be integrated into labs and the work they do. The organizers have released recordings of the event:
- Preview of the “What is a Feminist Lab?” symposium along with text of Maya Livio’s opening remarks
