Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Roberta Chevrette, an assistant professor in MTSU’s Department of Communication Studies, first aired March 12 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and online at You can listen to their conversation above.

Under the theme of “Gendered Migrations, Bodies and Borders,” the academic gathering will bring together scholars from around the world to present their research March 28-30.

The conference agenda also includes films, panel discussions and special speakers.

“The theme has a lot of room to delve specifically into topics of border issues and migration as well as to look more broadly at issues of women and gender,” Chevrette said.

The conference is part of the university’s celebration of National Women’s History Month.
