Keynote Speakers
Dr. Jess Pfeffer

Defining and Redefining womanhood:  the limits of language and the politics of gender

Jess R. Pfeffer received their PhD in English from Tufts University in 2018. Jess's research is mostly focused on the ways that we conceptualize the body as gendered and sexed, and the process through which we ascribe language to those bodies. Prior to working at Deerfield, Jess taught a smattering of college courses focused on gender and sexuality in the greater Boston area.

The ISGP Symposium brings together educators from around the country to empower them to advance gender dialogue and equity at work, school and beyond. To that end, our time together will include opportunities to learn from experts, to network with colleagues, and to have time and space to engage in conversations that are timely and relevant. Among those joining us this year to help guide our work are Dr. Lisa Damour and Dr. Jessica Pfeffer. For more information, visit our website: www.genderproject.com .

We look forward to seeing you in February,

The ISGP Board of Directors
