Women at Yale: A Tour
Saturday, July 16, 2016
Join us as Alice Moore ’04 MFA, ’07 DFA, ’09 MA and ’15 PhD guides us on a tour that journeys through the varied histories and iconographies of women on campus in spaces, places and stories, beginning with the inception of Yale College over three centuries ago.
Immediately following the tour, there will be an optional pay-as-you-go brunch/lunch at Harvest Restaurant http://harvestwinebar.com/new-haven/ located at 1104 Chapel Street, New Haven.
Tour begins at 10:00 a.m. (Location on campus to be emailed to participants)
Brunch/lunch will follow immediately, around 11:30 am/12:00 noon
Space is limited to 20 people. RSVP on this page for the tour and brunch/lunch no later than Saturday, July 9th (questions to Susan Lennon ’85 MPPM at email@example.com).
While there is no fee for the tour, there is a $100 honorarium that will be divided equally among all attendees (e.g., $100/20 attendees = $5 – if there are fewer than 20 attendees, the share of the honorarium will increase). The place where we will meet to begin the tour will be provided to those who register. If you register and your plans change and are no longer able to join us, please let Susan know so that we can open your slot to an alum on the wait list.
We look forward to seeing you! As we approach the 50th anniversary of women at Yale College and 150th anniversary of women at the Graduate & Professional Schools in 2019, we hope you will leave this tour continuing to look for evidence of women and men co-living, co-learning, co-teaching, and co-operating here at Yale and beyond.
About Alice Moore
Alice Rebecca Moore, PhD, has been preoccupied for years with Yale’s gendered spaces, iconographies, and histories. In 2009, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the coeducation of Yale College as well as the 140th anniversary of the coeducation of the Graduate & Professional Schools, she shaped Women at Yale: A Tour in conjunction with Yale’s Women Faculty Forum and with the sponsorship of Nancy Alexander ’79 and Phillip Bernstein ’79. Alice’s scholarly work centers on questions of memory, public history, and representation in performance, visual culture, and the built environment. Alice earned her PhD in American Studies at Yale, MFA in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism from the Yale School of Drama, and BA in Theatre and German Literature from Wesleyan University.
