IRW 30th Anniversary Celebration

In the Spring of 2008, the Institute for Research on Women commemorated three decades of innovative interdisciplinary scholarship made possible through the involvement, support, and devotion of Rutgers-affiliated faculty, advanced graduate students, and scholars and activists from both global and US institutions. The following are images from the April 10th reception and dinner, and April 11th symposium, "Inspiration, Reflections, Connections, Futures," documenting our celebration of what has passed and our critical exploration of what is yet to come in feminist scholarship.
