Wednesday, October 12 at 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Knight Library, Browsing Room
1501 Kincaid Street, Eugene, OR
In the 1970s, Oregon became the heartland of a radical feminist movement to establish intentional communities separate from a patriarchal world. Please join us for a discussion between scholars, archivists, and artists about the legacy and future of Oregon’s women’s lands, and the telling of their stories in artworks, exhibitions, scholarship, and intergenerational dialogue.
This event will be held in person at Knight Library Browsing Room, and live-streamed via zoom at this link:
