“The Women’s Legacy Project” recognizes women–scholars, artists, educators, philanthropists–who have been erased from the official history of The New School:
The Founding Mothers, 10 eminent women who helped to establish this progressive institution in 1919; Women creators of other schools and programs that now form part of the university, ranging from the Mannes School of Music (Clara Damrosch Mannes) to Eugene Lang College (Elizabeth Coleman);Visionary feminists who have worked consistently at the cutting edge, both in the humanities (as anthropologists, social scientists, philosophers) and in the arts (as actors and playwrights, musicians and composers, photographers and fashion designers).
We honor the achievements of these extraordinary, all-but-forgotten women with a joyous, raucous, roof-raising celebration.
The event will feature staged readings, live music, dance, video installations and taped interviews.
