Women in the Literary Landscape: Challenges and Opportunities
6:00 p.m. | Bianco Room, One Pace Plaza
Women in the US have been pioneering printers, publishers, teachers, editors, journalists, and librarians from colonial times to the present day, blazing trails despite inequities of opportunity. Our literary community is much richer for their diverse contributions. Join these distinguished panelists as they discuss the strategies that they and other literary women have used to overcome barriers.
Speakers will include Alice Kessler-Harris, PhD, Professor at Columbia University; Blanche Wiesen Cook, PhD, Professor at John Jay College and the Graduate Center at CUNY; Sarah Blackwood, PhD, Director of American Studies and Assistant Professor at Pace; and Jamia Wilson, Executive Director and Publisher of the Feminist Press at CUNY. The panel will be moderated by Rosalind Reisner, editor and contributing author of Women in the Literary Landscape: A Centennial Publication of the Women's National Book Association.
This event is free and open to the public.
