The seventh annual Sarah Lawrence College conference in honor of Women’s History Month will be an interdisciplinary gathering that seeks to understand women’s lives by examining the stories they tell about themselves and others. How have women understood their experience? What lessons have they sought to hand down? How have they found their voices in social movements, literature, the academy, the arts? How have differences of class, race, generation, ethnicity, nationality and sexuality played out in women’s lives? Do their stories reveal commonalities that transcend differences?
Esmeralda Santiago—poet, novelist, and author of the acclaimed memoirs When I was Puerto Rican (1993), Almost a Woman (1998), and The Turkish Lover (2004)—will give the keynote speech on March 4th.
This conference is free and open to the public. It will be held on the campus of Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, 15 minutes outside of Manhattan.
