Acker-Morgen Memorial Lectureship Series

The Center for the Study of Women in Society's Acker-Morgen Memorial Lectureship honors two powerful feminist voices, CSWS founding director Joan Acker and longtime center director Sandra Morgen, both of whom passed away in 2016. This annual lecture series commemorates their legacies by bringing to the University of Oregon campus renowned feminist scholars who work on issues of economic justice and gender equity – issues that were very near and dear to both Joan and Sandi. Donations to support this lecture series can be made here.

Lorwin Lectureship Series

The Lorwin Lectureship was created in 2009 with funding from the estate of Val and Madge Lorwin. Lectures by renowned scholars and experts promote greater appreciation for the importance of civil rights. The lectureship, overseen by the College of Arts and Sciences and the UO School of Law, is administered on a rotating basis by three campus education and research centers: the Oregon Humanities Center, the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, and the Center for the Study of Women in Society.
