CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Jennifer Cooley, associate professor in UNI's Department of Languages and Literatures, will present her lecture "21st Century Jungles: Representing Workplace Abuses Against Migrant Women" at noon, Monday, March 3, in the Center for Multicultral Education, as part of the Current Research on Women and Gender (CROW) Forum. The talk stems from ethnographic research conducted with migrant women in Iowa who were victims of abuse in the workplace. A discussion will follow the lecture.

CROW Forums not only build community among people interested in women's and gender issues, but they also allow UNI faculty to share their research with campus and the wider community. Presentations are held at noon the first Monday of each month in the Center for Multicultural Education, Room 109A. All events are free and open to the public.
