CHALLENGING THE ACADEMY: UB WOMEN IN POLAND
Screening & Panel Discussion

Presented at:
Center For the Arts (CFA) Screening Room 112, University at Buffalo, North Campus

CEC ArtsLink artist-in-residence Maria Zmarz-Koczanowicz will present her controversial 1994 documentary My Road to Feminism, which will be followed by a panel discussion. My Road to Feminism includes interviews with UB professors Isabel Marcus, Claire Kahane, Elizabeth Kennedy, and Carolyn Korsmeyer, who, along with professors Elizabeth C. Cromley and Carol Zemel, visited Poland in 1994 for a month as part of the UB/Jagiellonian University Exchange Program. This film provoked a great deal of discussion when it was shown on Polish television, because of the open manner in which the women talked about their personal and professional lives. Panelists will include Professor Elizabeth C. Cromley, Chair, Dept. of Architecture; Professor Claire Kahane, Dept. of English; Professor Elizabeth Kennedy, Dept. of American Studies; Professor Carolyn Korsmeyer, Dept. of Philosophy; Professor Isabel Marcus, UB Law School; Professor Carol Zemel, Dept. of Art History; and UB Exchange Scholar Margaret Lisowska-Magdziarz, Dept. of Journalism, Jagellonian University, Krakow, Poland. The panel will be moderated by Professor Tony Conrad, Dept. of Media Study, and will be followed by a reception.
