Women to Brown Bag It for History Lesson
Brownbag Lunch Panel: Do We Still Need Women's History?
Vermont History Museum, Pavilion Building, 109 State Street, Montpelier
Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 - Noon to 1 p.m.
Celebrate Women’s History Month over lunch by learning from a panel of esteemed historians and scholars addressing questions facing women's history in the 21st century: Do we still need to separate out women's stories? Does it help or harm women when their history is told separately? Is there a trend away from studying women's history as a separate topic? How can the context of women's history help inform the world today? Moderated by Cary Brown, the executive director of the Vermont Commission on Women, panelists include Dr. Felicia Kornbluh, Director of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at the University of Vermont, Dr. Marilyn Blackwell, independent historian, and Holly Allen, Assistant Professor of American Studies at Middlebury College. This program is free and open to the public, thanks to sponsorship from Clute Wealth Management, the Vermont Commission on Women and co-sponsorship by Cabot Creamery Cooperative and Key Bank.
