Talking NCAA women’s basketball
March 1 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) at Wellesley College will kick off its biannual Lunchtime Seminar Series on Thursday, March 1, with, “It’s March — But Is It Madness? An Exploration of NCAA Women’s Basketball.” The program will run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Room 413 of the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center at Wellesley College.
This presentation will explore the fascinating experience of NCAA Women’s Basketball in the midst of March Madness — including aspects such as predictability, logic, policy, analysis, history, and significant milestones. The talk will be led by a group of NCAA Women’s Basketball fans:
- Georgia Hall, Ph.D., associate director of WCW and director of the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST), a program of WCW
- Laura Pappano, inaugural writer-in-residence at WCW and an experienced journalist who has written extensively about gender equity issues in sports
- Bridget Belgiovine, M.Ed., director of athletics and chair of Physical Education, Recreation and Athletics at Wellesley College
- Lisette DeSouza, Ph.D., postdoctoral research scientist working with scholars at NIOST and WCW
- Laura McGeary ’19, research intern at NIOST and member of the Wellesley College basketball team
The Lunchtime Seminar Series is free and open to the public. Most programs are held Thursdays, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. at the Centers’ Cheever House location (828 Washington St, Wellesley), though this program will be held in the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center at Wellesley College. Guests are invited to bring their lunches, and WCW will provide tea and coffee. For accessibility questions, contact Disability Services at Wellesley College at [email protected]
For those who are unable to attend in person, the program will be streamed live on the Wellesley Centers for Women Facebook page (@wcwonline). Recordings from past seminars are posted online at wcwonline.org/video.
