Since we have so many areas around the world with only a very few members, we are posting the list of featured events which the HAA emails to subscribers each month. It is one way we are able to help members meet alums in their areas and possibly expand our membership to develop stronger communities.

RADCLIFFE INSTITUTE PANEL DISCUSSIONS in February
The Difficult Miracle: The Living Legacy of June Jordan
Thursday, February 22 | 4:15 PM
In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the arrival of the June Jordan Papers at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, this panel discussion features the activist Mariame Kaba, the poet Solmaz Sharif, and the scholar Imani Perry exploring the many facets of Jordan’s work. The panel will be followed by a public reception and a poetry and performance event featuring Harvard and community poets. Danielle Legros Georges, the poet laureate of Boston, will serve as host.

#metoo: Truths and Consequences
Monday, February 26 | 7 PM
Is #metoo radical or reactionary, a watershed or merely a flood? How can employers, campuses, and courts fully and fairly respond to the court of public opinion?
Coined in 2007 by the activist Tarana Burke, the hashtag #metoo became a global media tsunami in late 2017. As what some scholars are calling the “first wave” of the #metoo movement crests, Harvard faculty experts will explore the movement’s causes and project its consequences—intended and unintended. Reflecting from vantage points of history, African American studies, economics, and law, this event will deepen difficult interdisciplinary and intergenerational conversation around a topic that often generates more heat than light.

These events are free and open to the public. We encourage you to share this invitation with people you know who may be interested in attending.
