Let’s learn how feminists are crafting a political praxis rooted in the idea of truly living in Puerto Rico – that is, insisting on a life of dignity and respect that is free of degradation and violence.

The Jan Cohn Lecture is an annual lecture dealing with topics relating to American studies, culture, and history.  The lecture honors the memory of Jan Cohn, G. Keith Funston Professor of American Literature and American Studies and the first woman to serve as dean of the faculty at Trinity College.
