"Feminist to the Core" is a lecture series that seeks to transform the conversation in and around the Columbia core curriculum. The series is committed to grappling with questions of gender, race, sexuality and other structures of difference, while also exploring alternate approaches and ways of thinking about the texts that are at the heart of the Columbia experience.
