Lectures on Japan and Haiti today

Two internationally-focused lectures will be given on campus today.

First, at 5 p.m. in Hillyer Hall’s Graham Auditorium, Dr. David Howell will give this year’s Frank and Lois Green Schwoerer ’49 Annual Lecture in History.

Howell, a professor of Japanese History in the department of East Asian Languages & Civilizations at Harvard University, will give a talk entitled, “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Samurai”. The lecture is sponsored by the Frank and Lois Green Schwoerer ’49 fund, Department of History, Program in East Asian Studies, and the Smith College Lecture Committee. It is free and open to the public.

Then, at 7 p.m., Grace Louise Bowers Sanders will give a lecture on Haitian women’s rights.  Sanders, a Ph.D candidate in History and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan, will present “La Voix Des Femmes: Haitian Women’s Rights, National Politics and Black Activism in Port-Au-Prince and Montreal, 1934-1986” in Seelye 110.
