Two exhibitions in Watzek Library are celebrating the 40-year anniversary of the gender studies symposia. One, located online and on the top floor of the library, examines “Lack and Absence”. The other, found near the writing center and online, examines the history of the symposia.
Please take a moment to swing by the Watzek Library Atrium to view the winning photos of the LC Overseas and Off-Campus Programs 5th Annual International Photo Contest!

Albina was the center of Black life in Portland through most of the twentieth century. City-led urban renewal efforts and systematic disinvestment by financial institutions have led to displacement of the neighborhood’s Black residents. Yet through all this runs a thread of resistance by Albina’s Black community.
This digital exhibit, created by Watzek’s Special Collections and Archives in support of the 17th Annual Ray Warren Symposium at Lewis & Clark, seeks to depict ninety years of Albina’s history with a special focus on acts of resistance by Albina’s Black residents.
