Tanner Lecture on Human Values: Anita Hill

September 26 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Free

Professor Anita Hill will give the 2018 Tanner Lecture on Human Values, sponsored by the University of Utah’s Tanner Humanities Center. Hill’s lecture, “From Social Movement to Social Impact: Ending Sexual Harassment,” will be held on Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00 PM at the Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House, 155 S. Central Campus Drive.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating for this event will be first come, first served; a recording of the lecture will be made available to the public on the Tanner Humanities Center’s Youtube channel.

Anita Hill is Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University. She also chairs the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. Her public testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee prior to Clarence Thomas’ Supreme Court appointment in 1991 began a national conversation about sexual inequality and harassment, and her lecture will offer historical context and commentary.

“Anita Hill,” observed Tanner Humanities Center Director and U Professor of History Bob Goldberg, “was an original ‘me’ of the #Me Too Movement. Like women today who fight back against harassers in the work place, she was targeted as delusional, manipulative, and seeking revenge. Character assassination and blaming the victim has a long history that has not yet seen its end. Anita Hill offers us perspective and a view of the road ahead.”
