*To support GWS scholarship (and for faculty): From Spring 2019, we are initiating pre-print discussions, and in-print celebration of faculty scholarship. Thanks to Dr. Michael Eng for this great idea, and for being a co-organizer. For the pre-print discussion, a work-in-progress (under review, revise etc.) will be circulated to GWS faculty who sign up for the discussion. During the discussion session, the author of the article under-review, will frame the discussion with information about submission plans, how it addresses GWS, kind of feedback they request, and other details. We then open the floor for discussions. The in-printevent will celebrate GWS scholarship and it will be a part of the end of the semester GWS celebrations.

This series seeks to support, mentor, and celebrate GWS scholarship. We are mindful that there are various forms of transdisciplinary scholarship, and please do work with us to grow and broaden this series so that it supports varied forms of scholarly work.

February 1st: Dr. Michael Eng, Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Faculty Affiliate of GWS, will share his work-in-progress titled "Architecture, Queer Feminist Temporality, and the Hermeneutics of Disability." Please let me (chatterjees@appstate.edu) know by 21st January, if you plan to participate in this discussion. The discussion will be from 3-4pm on 1st February, and an ASULearn site will give you access to the work-in-progress.

Also, please do let us know if you have a work-in-progress that you would like us to schedule for the pre-print series.
