Event Description:
Join the University Libraries and graduate student Michele 'Scout' Johnson Thursday, March 7 at 4 p.m. in the Special Collections Reading Room as she presents "Mothers of Intention: The Road to a Dissertation Lies through Special Collections."

Johnson's presentation is based on her dissertation, "Mothers of Intention: The Intersection of Gender, Violence and Racism in the Klan and Massive Resistance Movement, 1954-1968." 

"Although I did not think that I was writing my dissertation on an Arkansas topic, the information I have found in Special Collections has added a depth that I otherwise would not have imagined, and made my dissertation a more complete accounting of how gender and racism intersected during the time period of my study," Johnson said. 

The Graduate Student Speaker Series was launched last semester by the University Libraries and Graduate School and International Education. The next speaker, Robyn Spears, will present “Arkansas Aprons: Women’s Diaries and Food in the 19th Century” April 4 at 4 p.m. in the Special Collections Reading Room. 

"
We’re delighted to provide graduate students with the opportunity to share their research that draws on special collections resources with our community," said Lori Birrell, head of Special Collections. 

Graduate students interested in being part of the speaker series are encouraged to contact Birrell at lbirrell@uark.edu or 479-575-8443.
