Celebrating International Women’s Day, this symposium presents the results of Project Continua, an investigation by New School students aimed at bringing to light scholarly work produced by “undiscovered women.” This scholarship, newly reclaimed by feminists, reflects a lost history of women representing themselves, individually and collectively. Presentations emphasize how much is owed to these little-remembered female intellectuals, who paved the way for the access to higher education that many women now enjoy. Coordinated by Gina Luria Walker, associate professor of women’s studies at The New School for Public Engagement, and Carin Kuoni, director of the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. Speakers include Catherine J. Morris, curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, and Andrea Geyer, artist and assistant professor of fine arts at Parsons The New School for Design, with others to be announced. Co-sponsored by The New School for Public Engagement and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, with support from the University Academic Event Fund.
