Sandra Donaldson Essay Contest
Deadline for Submissions March 15
The UND Women and Gender Studies Program announces a contest for the best works of research and/or creative expression produced by UND students that wholly or in significant part address issues related to women and/or gender studies. We encourage students who have produced works in a variety of disciplines, from the arts and humanities to the social sciences and physical sciences, to submit their research papers and creative projects for consideration.
Entries should be delivered to the Women and Gender Studies Office (O'Kelly Hall 133; Stop 7113) or submitted electronically to email@example.com. Label entries with the student author's phone number, home address, and email contact information. The project need not have been completed during the academic year in which it is submitted, but previous entries may not be resubmitted.
This contest is named in honor of Dr. Sandra Donaldson, Professor Emerita of English and Women Studies at the University of North Dakota and one of the world's top scholars of Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Her five volume scholarly edition, The Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, was published by Pickering & Chatto in 2010. When Dr. Donaldson began teaching at UND in 1977, she was one of only a few women in the Department of English. Since that time she has been an active proponent of social and intellectual diversity at the University. She helped to found UND's Women Studies Program, and later served as its director. She was awarded the Outstanding Faculty Award for Development and Service, as well as the UND Foundation/Thomas J. Clifford Faculty Achievement Award for Excellence in Research. She was named a Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor in 2004. She retired in 2012 after thirty-five years of scholarship, feminist activism, and service to the University of North Dakota.
Meet, Eat, and Learn
Date: March 26th
Time: 12 pm-1 pm
Place: International Center
Speaker: Kathy Coudle King will be performing for International Women's History month. "70 and Better" - What do dancing to Glen Miller, the Tet Offensive, dead muskrats, African Safaris, and mediation have in common? Why, they are all aspects of dramatic monologues written by local teen girls after interviewing women in the community who are 70-years and older. Hear their stories and witness the adventure that 7-plus decades of living reveal. This project is brought to you by the Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre, directed by Amy Driscoll, and supported in part by the UND Women's Center and the Women's Fund of the GF/EGF Community Foundation.

Keynote Address: bell hooks
Dr. bell hooks is a noted cultural critic, commentator, and feminist, is Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College.

Prior to accepting the Distinguished Professorship at Berea College and returning to Kentucky, bell hooks has taught at Yale, Oberlin College, and City College of New York. Educated at UC- Santa Cruz, UW- Madison and Stanford, Dr. bell hooks is the author of over thirty books, many of which have focused on issues of social class, race, and gender.
