Rosa Manus Lecture
14 Dec 2016
Rosa Manus LectureOn Wednesday December 14 Professor Francisca de Haan will give the first Rosa Manus lecture called Rosa Manus: Restoring to History a “Dutch Woman Leader” who Fell Victim to the Nazi’s. There will also be a comment by Professor Mineke Bosch.
The Rosa Manus Lecture is a tribute to a woman who is of historical importance for the development of women’s position as fully-fledged political citizens and also in the field of history. Rosa Manus (1881–1942) played a crucial role in the women’s suffrage movement and the peace movement at both a national and international level. Through this annual lecture, Atria wishes to provide a critical, internationally oriented focus on academic developments that are relevant to women’s and gender history. It is therefore also perpetuating the memory of Rosa Manus and the historical significance of her work.
Both the lecture and the comment will be held in English.
At 9.00 p.m. the programme will be concluded with a festive drinks reception.
