In the 1990s, Time Magazine declared that feminism was dead. In her new book, They Didn’t See Us Coming: The Hidden History of Feminism in the 1990s, Levenstein shows otherwise. Global and local activists engaged a new tool, called the internet, and with it, new types of activism arose. Activists’ innovative communication strategies—elevating people whose voices had been marginalized to create new communities and attract new audiences—prefigured and laid groundwork for the online movements of our day.
Open to all, everywhere!

Since we are not able to gather for our annual symposium, we are coordinating a Virtual Brown Bag Series to keep the members of the Pittsburgh Gender Scholars Consortium connected. Plan to join us over the lunch hour to hear updates from your colleagues on their latest gender scholarship. The presentations will be brief and informal, to give the group plenty of time for discussion and connecting. Mark your calendars, and be sure to register for each session to receive the registration link.
More information about each session, including presenters, topics, and a registration link, will be posted on this website.
