Five Hundred Years of Women's Work: A Conversation with Lisa Unger Baskin

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2019-02-27 23:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Please join us for the opening of the exhibition "Five Hundred Years of Women's Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection" which will feature collector and exhibit co-curator Lisa Unger Baskin in conversation with Dr. Naomi Nelson.  Reception to follow.

Women’s work. The phrase usually conjures up domestic duties or occupations largely associated with women—such as teaching, nursing, or housekeeping. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection upends those associations. By bringing together materials from across the centuries, Baskin reveals what has been hidden—that Western women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection is now part of Duke’s Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture. This exhibition provides a first glimpse of the diversity and depth of the collection, revealing the lives of women both famous and forgotten and recognizing their accomplishments.

Juan E. Méndez Human Rights Book Award: María McFarland Sánchez-Moreno

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2019-02-26 22:00
Other (see event description)
East Campus

Location: Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Smith Warehouse Bay 4, C105. (See campus map.)

Duke University has named María McFarland Sánchez-Moreno’s book, There Are No Dead Here: A Story of Murder and Denial in Colombia (Nation Books, 2018) as the winner of the 2018 Juan E. Méndez Book Award for Human Rights in Latin America. McFarland will visit Duke University on February 26, 2019, to receive the award and discuss her book.

There Are No Dead Here is a deep dive into key human rights cases that exposed the murderous nexus between right-wing paramilitaries, drug lords, and Colombia’s military and political establishment. Through dogged reporting, in part as a Human Rights Watch researcher, McFarland unravels the links that led to the murders of Colombian rights investigators by powerful interests that reached as high as military leadership and even the Colombian presidency.

This award honors the leadership of Juan E. Méndez, a human rights champion who has devoted his life to the defense of human rights. First awarded in 2008, this award selects among the best current non-fiction books published in English on human rights, democracy, and social justice in contemporary Latin America.

Co-sponsored by the Human Rights Archive at the Rubenstein Library, Duke Human Rights Center @ FHI, and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
