Thanks in part to the scholar and poet Julie Enszer, the papers of the late Pat Parker arrived this past winter at the Schlesinger Library and are currently being processed. Enszer had a conversation recently with her friend Jenny Factor—a poet and Harvard-Radcliffe alumna who serves on the Schlesinger Library Council—about Parker’s life and work.

The Harvard Arts Blog says: "Photographer Matika Wilbur lights up talking about the women in her images in "Seeds of Culture: The Portraits and Stories of Native American Women."
