Join us this summer for a series of Virtual Radcliffe Book Talks exploring recent publications whose subjects or authors have a connection with the Radcliffe Institute.

Maggie Doherty PhD ’15, author of The Equivalents: A Story of Art, Female Friendship, and Liberation in the 1960s (Knopf, 2020)

The first installment in our summer series of Virtual Radcliffe Book Talks will feature Maggie Doherty, author of The Equivalents: A Story of Art, Female Friendship, and Liberation in the 1960s, an exploration of fellowship and collaboration among five artists—Maxine Kumin, Tillie Olsen, Mariana Pineda, Anne Sexton, and Barbara Swan—who met in the 1960s at the then-Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study.

Doherty’s reading will be followed by a discussion with Tomiko Brown-Nagin, dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Daniel P.S. Paul Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard Law School, professor of history in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and chair of the Presidential Committee on Harvard and the Legacy of Slavery at Harvard University. The event will also include an audience Q and A. 


We plan to post the recording on our website one week after the event.
