On March 8, 2018, Professor Tani Barlow will present the talk, “Collecting Theory: The Role of Chinese Feminist Philosophy in a Chinese Women's History Archive,” as part of the Shauna M. Stark ‘76 Out of the Archive Lecture Series. Started in 2016, the series welcomes history makers who have contributed their papers to the Pembroke Center Archives to speak about their scholarship and legacy. Barlow is the George and Nancy Rupp Professor of History at Rice University where her research focuses on Chinese feminism, gender politics in modern China, women’s movements in Asia, and postcoloniality. Notable publications by Barlow include The Modern Girl Around the World (contributor, 2008) and the Question of Women in Chinese Feminism (2004). Barlow donated her personal and professional papers to the Feminist Theory Archive in 2015. The collection is now open and available for research at the John Hay Library. To learn more about the Tani Barlow papers, please view the online guide to the collection.
This event is part of the Pembroke Center Shauna M. Stark '76 Out of the Archive lecture series featuring contributors to the Pembroke Center Archives.
