“40 Years Strong, A Timeline of Feminist Research, Teaching, and Activism on Campus” is currently on display at the Knight Library on the UO campus.  Researched by Jenée Wilde, a PhD candidate in English (Folklore) and CSWS development fellow, the display was developed in collaboration with Cristian Boboia, Image Services, UO Libraries, from materials in UO Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives and the  files of the Center for the Study of Women in Society. Historic papers, photographs, posters, and documents illustrate a 40-year timeline of activity. Display cases are located on the first floor outside the Browsing Room.

Presented in collaboration with the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and ASUO Women’s Center, CSWS’s 40th Anniversary Celebration will be held Nov. 7-9, 2013, in UO’s Erb Memorial Union. Free and open to the public (ticketing required), the event offers multiple opportunities to witness the long reach of feminist thought and production through engaging narratives about our past, present, and possible futures.
