The History Department and Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) presents: 

Dr. Lana Dee Povitz 

Assistant Professor of History, Middlebury College

This talk will explore the challenges of writing an oral history-based biography of Shulamith Firestone, American radical feminist, organizer, writer, and artist (1945-2012). Gifted with creativity and insight, Firestone was a prime mover in the Women’s Liberation Movement of the late 1960s. She also struggled during her later life with schizophrenia and was frequently hospitalized against her will. Rather than splitting off these later years as an unfortunate sidebar, this work engages with the full sweep of Firestone’s life and brings new meaning to her legacy of resistance. 

This event is hybrid, you can join in-person or via zoom
