Team of Wellesley College faculty, researchers, and student to lead discussion
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 upbeat 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 knowledgeable 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

- Lisette DeSouza, Ph.D., postdoctoral research scientist working with scholars at NIOST and WCW
