UTSA hosts women's fair during Women's History Month

(March 10, 2005)--The UTSA Women's Studies Institute (WSI) presented a women's fair Thursday, March 10 at the Sombrilla Plaza on the 1604 Campus. The event, part of a full schedule of activities during Women's History Month, included information booths staffed by representatives from more than 25 women's organizations and music by Girls in a Coma, Rita Vidaurri and Ledaswan.

Activities during March feature innovative and inspired works of women, while encouraging both male and female members of the UTSA community to inspire, invent and create.

Sonia Saldivar-Hull, WSI founding director, holds doctoral and master's degrees in English from the University of Texas at Austin and a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Houston. She wrote the book, "Feminism on the Border: Chicana Gender Politics and Literature," and her research in Chicana feminist theory and literature has been published in more than a dozen books and journal articles. Since 1997, Saldivar-Hull has served as co-editor of "Latin America Otherwise," a book series by Duke University Press.

Patricia Trujillo, assistant to the director of WSI, is committee chair of UTSA Women's History Month 2005.
