Bucknell Geographer to Discuss "Women, Religion and Space" Nov. 3 at UNO
Omaha - Throughout her teaching career, Karen Morin, an associate professor of geography at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, has worn many hats - as a scholar, teacher and student of travel, gender and empires. She will share her focus on women and religions in geographic space and place at a lecture set for Friday, Nov. 3, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
Her talk, titled "Women, Religion and Space," will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Chancellor's Room.
The lecture will explore ways that religions regulate women's use of space and how religious women negotiate and define places. The talk also will highlight the ways women develop senses of themselves in space and place.
Morin's research focuses on the connections between British and American imperialisms, North American historical geography and women's travel writing. She also served as a Fulbright lecturer to Nizhni Novgorod State University in Russia in the fall of 2002.
"I am delighted that we can bring a scholar of Karen's caliber to our campus," said Karen Falconer Al-Hindi, director of the UNO Women's Studies Program and associate professor of geography. "Her talk is sure to engage a wide range of people. There are many students, staff, faculty and community friends with interests in this fascinating and important area."
The Nov. 3 lecture is sponsored by the UNO Women's Studies Program and the UNO Department of Geography/Geology. A reception will follow the presentation.
