2013-14 Road Scholars 40th Anniversary Public Lecture Program

  • What is Feminism? – This talk provides a brief history of the term “feminism” as both a description of social movements aimed at the emancipation of women and as a form of social critique. It also highlights controversies about feminism, its treatment in the media, and increasing cultural and political interest in the term. Presented by Carol Stabile, director of CSWS and professor in the School of Journalism and Communication.
  • Jane Grant: A Feminist Legacy – This talk tells the story of Jane Grant’s impact on feminist history, from her co-founding of The New Yorker to her activism in early women’s rights movements, and the serendipitous events that brought her legacy to the University of Oregon and the Center for the Study of Women in Society. Presented by Jenée Wilde, MFA, PhD candidate, and CSWS development fellow.
  • Global Feminisms in Media Development – This talk looks at the different ways in which “feminism” gets to be articulated around the world, and in particular in the developing world, through media development. It also reveals how grassroots media development and other media discourses contribute to the empowerment of women and minority communities. Presented by Gabriela Martínez, associate director of CSWS and associate professor in the School of Journalism and Communication.
