The full schedule of events for the Ray Warren Multicultural Symposium, which runs November 7-9, can be viewed here. Our selection of supporting materials can be found on the Diversions bookshelf, located in the Watzek Library Mac Lab, and also on Pinterest.
Highlights include a complete set of Susan B. Anthony's suffrage newspaper, The Revolution; books by Abigail Scott Duniway; and Susan B. Anthony's journals documenting her trips to Oregon. The collections were curated by Jean Ward, Lewis & Clark faculty emeritus with the support of Special Collections staff and student workers.
We invite you to explore these collections and accompanying text here: A Guide to Digital Resources for the Study of Women in Oregon

Jonathan Walters, the Guest Director of Failure to Communicate and Artistic Director of Hand2Mouth Theatre, Michael Olich, Associate Professor of Theatre and Scene Designer of Failure to Communicate, a student cast member (TBD), and two faculty members (TBD) will contribute to what's sure to be a great conversation! The discussion will be moderated by Stephanie Beene, Visual Resources Coordinator and Library Liaison to Art, Music, Theatre and Dance Depts. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
This talk-back panel is part of a series of events held this month at Watzek Library, in support of the LC Theater Department's upcoming performance, Failure to Communicate. Questions or comments about this series may be directed to Stephanie Beene (email@example.com).
Guest directed by Jonathan Walters, Artistic Director of Portland's Hand2Mouth Theatre, Failure to Communicate explores a totalitarian society that locks up its citizens when they ‘speak out of place.’ That is, until a new woman arrives, and shakes up the docile obedient inmates, creating a small, but vital revolution which demands self-worth and freedom from their captors.
Questions or comments about these displays, may be directed to Stephanie Beene (firstname.lastname@example.org).
