Due to ways in which black women have been marginalized in publishing, it is necessary to use archives to map the deep writing networks among these women writers. "She Gathers Me" examines the connections found within intimate correspondences, personal projects, and speaking engagements and furthers our understanding of the interconnectedness of black women writers beyond their published works. Through archival collections, we are granted insight into how these writers supported, challenged, and associated with one another. This exhibition, curated by Gabrielle Dudley, explores the networks created among black women writers through four lenses: Collective, SisterWriters, Dialogue, and Remembrance. Featured writers include Alice Walker, Audre Lorde, Marie Vans, Lucille Clifton, Gwendolyn Brooks, Maya Angelou, Barbara Chase Riboud, Pearl Cleage, Tayari Jones, and Margaret Walker. Hours: M-F 10 am-5 pm. + Schwartz Center for Performing Arts: Chace Gallery |<br>1700 N Decatur Rd Campus Events

07:30PM 07:30PM Lecture: Quantifying Modern Antisemitism: School: Oxford CollegeDepartment / Organization: Oxford CollegeBuilding/Room: Williams Hall (Oxford)Event Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeContact Name: Brenna ValentineContact Email: brenna.a.valentine@emory.eduAyal Feinberg is a specialist on contemporary anti-Semitism across the United States and Europe. He has published several peer-reviewed journal articles examining the factors that explain anti-Semitic incident variation. His work has also been widely featured in internationally syndicated media outlets. His research integrates contemporary social science methodology into the study of anti-Semitism and has been taught as an upper-level undergraduate course at the University of North Texas titled, “The Political Weaponization of Anti-Semitism.” He has received numerous research and teaching awards throughout his academic career. He also served as an editorial assistant for the American Political Science Review, the premier journal for the study of political science. Feinberg’s research challenges extant approaches to the study of anti-Semitism and its radical right perpetrators. Utilizing event-count data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Southern Poverty Law Center among others, his research underscores that hate crime variation is not only explained by political factors and contexts, but that the study of prejudice can and should be studied systematically across time and space using rigorous statistical models. His scholarship has been featured or is forthcoming in International Interactions, Politics and Religion, Contemporary Jewry, PS: Political Science, Harvard National Security Journal, and the Journal of Southeast European and Black Sea Studies. Additionally, his research and commentary has been featured in the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage and The Hill. In 2019, his examination of the effects of Trump rallies and rhetoric on reported extremist incident variation was introduced as evidence in the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s hearing on “Hate Crime and the Rise of White Nationalism.” This is an Oxford Studies event. + Oxford College Campus Events
