The Lonesomeness of Pioneering

A poetry reading by Susan Eisenberg

February 6, 2009
1:00pm
Poetry Center, Sawyer Library (3rd Floor)


A multidisciplinary artist and educator, Susan Eisenberg re-imagines the everyday, playing with scale and juxtaposition to investigate issues of power and social policy.  She is a Visiting Artist/Scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, where she focuses on projects in medical humanities and employment equity.  She has developed two touring exhibits: the photgraphs and poems of Perpetual Care, and the mixed media installation On Equal Terms (on display now at the Adams Gallery, through March 17).  As an artist, activist, author and lecturer, Eisenberg helped shape the cultural expression and analytical thinking of the tradeswomen's movemnt nationally and internationally. 

Refreshments will be served.  Sponsored by the Women's and Gender Studies Program.  For more information, please contact 617-573-8116.
