In response to the disbanding of BYU’s Women’s Research Institute, announced October 29, 2009, a group of students, faculty, and others are petitioning administrators to create a Women’s Research Council.
Please take a moment to sign the petition, if you have not already been prompted to with the flurry of emails and facebook messages. The goal is 5,000 signatures by Monday evening. Last time I checked the site the number of signatures was only 551. . . . So, sign and spread the word, por favor!
Finally, if you are in the area, try to make it down to Provo for what will be the Institute’s last Research Colloquium next Thursday, November 19, at 12:00 p.m. in 4188 JFSB. Rachel Cope will be speaking on early nineteenth-century women’s conversion experiences.
