Registration has closed.

Maureen Cummins's 20-year body of work explores how throughout history sexualized violence has been used as a tool of patriarchal oppression. Exploring concerns of the #MeToo movement, Cummins will also examine the way in which all groups—including men—have been targeted by sex-based division and discrimination.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Guests will have an opportunity to view examples of the artist's work from the Sheridan Libraries Department of Special Collections.

Light fare will be provided before and after the lecture.

This event is part of Johns Hopkins University's Women's Suffrage Centennial Commemoration. It is presented by the Winston Tabb Special Collections Research Center and the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries.  

The Paula U. Hamburger Endowed Lecture was established in 2003 to honor the late Paula Hamburger's devotion to Johns Hopkins University's libraries by her son, John Greenspan, and granddaughter, Katie Applefeld.

The Winston Tabb Special Collections Research Center, established by President Daniels and the JHU trustees, honors Dean Tabb and his commitment to promoting scholarship by encouraging original research using the Sheridan Libraries’ rare books, manuscripts, and archives. The center’s fellowships and programming create and promote contributions to the scholarly record.
