  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 

“Taste of UIS” lecture presents a history of the women’s movement

March 4, 2005

SPRINGFIELD - The University of Illinois Alumni Association at UIS will present “International Women’s Movements a Century Ago: Buried History, Repeated History” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at Maldaner’s Upstairs, 222 South Sixth St., Springfield. Reservations are required and should be made no later than Wednesday, March 16.

The second program in the spring Taste of UIS: Distinguished Faculty/Alumni Lunchtime Lecture Series will feature Margot Duley, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

In the early 20th century, the women’s movement was emerging all over the world, yet today there is a backlash against women’s rights, including those in some third world countries previously seen as reformist. Duley will discuss what went wrong, lessons to be learned from both successes and failures, the role of “outside” allies internationally, and the likely impact of U.S. foreign policy.

The third program in the series, on Tuesday, April 26, will feature Assistant Professor of English Barbara Burkhardt discussing “William Maxwell: A Literary Life.”

Cost for each program – $18 per person, $13 for Alumni Association members and their guests – includes a buffet lunch.  To make reservations, call Alumni Relations at (217) 206-7395, register on-line at www.uiaa.org/spfld/, or e-mail alumni@uis.edu.
