Boise State undergraduate student Christina Kopper and graduate student Shanna Hagenah presented at the competitive annual meeting of the National Women’s Studies Association in Baltimore, Maryland, representing the Gender Studies program with their original research.

Hagenah, a graduate student in communication and affiliated with the Gender Studies program, presented her work titled “Freedom to Learn: How Critical Pedagogy Can Disrupt White Hegemonic Discourses That Oppress Women of Color.”

Kopper, an undergraduate in gender studies and sociology, presented her paper titled “‘But What Happened To You?’  Navigating College and Hookup Culture Among People Who Identify As Asexual.”

Each of these students’ papers was accepted to panels alongside presentations from research faculty across the country; a significant achievement for two talented young scholars.
