Series Accession 2008-A-025: Women Faculty Forum poster session, "Scholarship by Women/Research on Gender," 2006

Call Number: RU 1058, Series Accession 2008-A-025

Scope and Contents

The Yale Women Faculty Forum hosted a campus-wide poster session on November 7-9, 2006. The session encouraged faculty, students and staff to use a visual medium to present research, advocacy, and discussions taking place on campus by, for, and on women. Poster size was limited to 11 x 17. Some were handmade; other posters were developed electronically. Contributions were received from across the disciplines at Yale and represent an array of work being done on campus from the Nursing school to the Divinity school and almost every campus location in between.

The posters were hung on Beinecke Plaza for three days using a system of "clothesline" hanging for display. The method is similar to that used by the Yale Women's Center during the Take Back the Night rally. The clothesline also referenced the stereotypes surround women's household labor juxtaposed with the poster content on scholarship, research, writing, and activism by women and on gender.

The posters have toured libraries across campus - Medicine, Social Sciences, Forestry, and Divinity, and the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies.

The following abstracts were written by the the poster creators.
