Trek Talk Examines Gender Roles


The next Trek Talk lecture from 6-7 p.m. in the Del and Norma Robison Planetarium. March 29 will be hosted by Amy Norgard, associate professor of classics. Norgard will examine women, gender and sex in “Star Trek” and how the series has portrayed an array of female characters, but not in a consistent way. She will explore the voices of women and LGBTQ presence in “Star Trek,” and discuss whether its aspirations to promote equality extend to gender. This is an in-person event, but those who wish to attend this event via Zoom should email Jared Young at
