“Agents of Change” event description: In collaboration with the ASUO Women’s Center and the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, the Center for the Study of Women in Society presents “Agents of Change” – a three-day celebration of feminist research, activism, and creativity at the University of Oregon. The celebration opens on Thursday, November 7, by honoring the legacy of feminist research and leadership through special guests and a new documentary film on the founding of CSWS. On Friday, November 8, the symposium “Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives” explores important personal and political moments from four decades of change, progress, and challenges in feminism. On Friday evening, the celebration moves into feminist visions of the future with special guest Ursula K. Le Guin. Feminist utopian thought continues on Saturday, November 9, with the “Worlds Beyond World” symposium that explores the role that feminist speculative fiction has played in helping us think about brighter and less oppressive futures.
