WRT Flyer

Join Us for the 35th Annual Winter Roundtable #WRT2018!

The Winter Roundtable is the longest running continuing professional education program in the United States devoted solely to cultural issues in psychology and education. The Winter Roundtable continues its tradition of bringing together scholars, practitioners, researchers, social change agents and students interested in the intersections between race, ethnicity, social class, gender, ability status, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation in psychology and education.

The Winter Roundtable 2018 theme, Nevertheless, She Persisted: Power and Patriarchy in Psychology and Education, underscores the pervasiveness and pernicious effects of misogyny, sexism and gender oppression, particularly as these forces intersect with psychology and education. The 2018 conference invites proposals that depict research, pedagogy, practice and activism that address these themes.

As in years past, we look forward to a conference in which students, scholars, practitioners, educators and community activists gather so as to share wisdom and resources. We hope you will join us for the exciting event.
