Women@MIT Fellowship Projects
MIT’s Department of Distinctive Collections presents a virtual lecture by 2023 Women@MIT Fellow Rachel Lane, program associate in the Institute’s Center for Oral History.
Lane, who is one of only two recipients of this prestigious fellowship, will discuss her “Mapping Migration at MIT: Eighteen Stories of International Women” project. This interactive story map explores how women’s work in science has crossed international borders and includes the oral histories of chemist Uma Chowdhry and biochemistry professor Barbara Panning found in the Science History Institute Digital Collections.
About the Women@MIT Fellowship
Working within the MIT Libraries’ Department of Distinctive Collections, the Women@MIT Fellows are scholars, activists, artists, musicians, writers, and others whose projects showcase the Women@MIT collections in informative and engaging ways.
This “drop-in” tour highlights the science of natural dyes and textiles, the technology behind synthetic clothing, and the impact of fashion on human health and the environment.
Join us in our museum EVERY SATURDAY for a family-friendly program that highlights strange and surprising stories from the history of science!
In the first session of this five-part Roundtable course, we trace the origins of race science to the Enlightenment in Europe.
