Anyone in the area should take note that the 2007 Borah Symposium is focusing on the subject of Women, War and Peace. The series of lectures will be kicked off tomorrow at 7:00 at the Kenworthy theater in Moscow with a screening of The Shape of Water, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Kum-Kum Bhavani. Lectures will also be held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - check out the schedule for details. Other speakers include Mary Robinson, the first female president of Ireland, Sister Lorraine Gaseau, a noted peace negotiator, and Cynthia Enloe, who I'll confess I'd never heard of, but I'll trust Samhita that she's pretty amazing.
And if you plan on going, email me so we can get a cup of coffee and talk about what we learn!
