The OMA attended and presented at the Oregon Women in Higher Education (OWHE) conference on January 24th!
The conference theme was THRIVE and it was a day of incredibly inspiring presentations that began with the keynote address by Dr. Avel Gordly (check out her book Remembering the Power of Words published by the OSU press) and continued with women from higher education institutions across the state sharing their research and experiences.
The OMA was very excited to present with Jean Moule – we not only have her collection and oral histories, we have co-taught the class “Sundown Towns in Oregon” two years in a row and hope to continue our wonderful relationship with her.
Our poster was all about Jean’s journey after her retirement. Jean has continued to teach, write, and attend conferences, but she had also spent more and more time traveling and creating her art. The poster shows this change over time from 2009-the present:
We had a wonderful time talking with conference attendees and were thrilled to share our collaborative efforts with our colleagues, check out the photos below:
