SHEDDING LIGHT ON THE HISTORY OF WOMEN AT YALE
PRIVATE EXHIBIT TOUR AND TEA-TIME CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHORS
1 PM, MARCH 1, 2020
Join us on a tour of the exhibit that two graduating students have at Sterling Library:
- Valentina Connell ‘20 will walk us through her research on “the evolution of housing policy and residential life in Yale College over the past fifty years, since the first undergraduate women were admitted in 1969”.
- Mariana Melin-Corcoran ‘20 will share her findings on researching “the history of women's involvement in the Yale School of Architecture”, a department inaugurated in 1916 yet inaccessible to women until late 1940s-early 1950s.
The tour will start at 1 pm and will last approximately 45 minutes. Plan to meet at the entrance of Sterling Library. Following the tour, we will gather over tea and snacks for questions and conversation with the authors.
