Pembroke Center

The Pembroke Center at Brown University is an interdisciplinary research center that fosters critical scholarship on questions of gender and difference, broadly defined, in national and transnational contexts.

Exploring the Legacy of Louise Lamphere v. Brown University

To mark Brown’s 250th anniversary, the Pembroke Center will explore Louise Lamphere v. Brown University, Civil Action 75-0140, the class action case that charged the University with sexual discrimination against its own faculty. After analyzing the effects of this case on Brown, and its national significance for diversity in higher education, the Center will mount an exhibit and offer public programs to illuminate this pivotal moment in Brown’s history and its aftermath. The Pembroke Center is partnering with the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage and the Brown University Library on this examination of a critical period in Brown’s history.
