*Jane Marcus Feminist University* is a day-long celebration of the life and
scholarship of Jane Marcus organized by her former students.

Distinguished Professor of English at City College and the Graduate Center,
CUNY, Jane Marcus was a radical scholar, mentor, and activist. Her seminal
work established Virginia Woolf as a major canonical writer. Her
scholarship laid the groundwork for feminist studies to become a mode of
inquiry within the academy. Because of her advocacy and radicalism as a
teacher, numerous individuals were able to gain rights and access to
professional opportunities—particularly within academia—that had
traditionally been unavailable to people of color, women, and members of
the working class.

*Jane Marcus Feminist University* will feature a round table discussion on
feminist pedagogy; breakout workshops on her scholarship; readings from her
work and primary influences; and a plenary on her legacy. This
unconventional conference will honor Jane’s intellectual bravery and her
lasting impact on the lives of so many students.
