SSRI Lunch-n-Learn: Please save the date for March 24, 2021 @ 12:00-1:00 pm to chat with Karly Ford from Penn State. She’ll be discussing her work on the social construction of race and gender. I’m excited to have an outside speaker so I hope many of you can join! And of course we’ll have time for Q&A.
