From the Columbia Star:
A public symposium celebrating the lives of South Carolina women is set for Thursday, June 4, at the University of South Carolina and is expected to draw scholars from around the world, who have written about Palmetto State women.
Hosted by the university's College of Arts and Sciences, "South Carolina Women: Their Lives and Times," will take place in the Daniel- Mickel Center on the eighth floor of the Moore School of Business. The daylong event begins at 8:30 am and will feature concurrent sessions with dozens of mini- presentations on the lives of notable South Carolina women, from the Native American "Lady of Cofitachequi," who reigned in the 1500s, to S.C. Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal.
The symposium coincides with the release of the first installment in the three- volume anthology, "South Carolina Women: Their Lives and Times", coedited by Dr. Marjorie Spruill and Dr. Valinda Littlefield at the university and Dr. Joan Marie Johnson of Northeastern Illinois University.
