During the fall, images, documents, artwork, publications, and other historical materials related to four decades of feminist research, teaching, activism, and creativity are on display in several locations, including the Knight Library, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Erb Memorial Union, and Eugene Airport.

The airport exhibit highlights the research of CSWS research grant awardees, including Gabriela Martínez, now associate director of CSWS and associate professor in the UO School of Journalism and Communication; Shannon Elizabeth Bell, who earned her PhD from UO in 2010 and is now an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Kentucky; and R. Charli Carpenter, who earned her PhD at UO in 2003 and is now a human security analyst and associate professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

These exhibitions celebrate the 40th anniversary of CSWS and showcase materials provided by the Knight Library Special Collections and University Archives, the permanent collection of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, the ASUO Women’s Center, and the Center for the Study of Women in Society. The Eugene Airport “Center for the Study of Women in Society” exhibit was curated by Regan S.
