Gonzaga University’s “What Can We Learn?” lecture series, which focuses on lessons from great thinkers of the past, continues with “What Can We Learn from Feminism?” at 7 p.m. on Oct. 24 in the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium.

Gonzaga faculty member Jane Rinehart, professor of sociology, and Ellen Maccarone, associate professor of philosophy, will provide insights into feminism. Rinehart will focus on the work of American feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Maccarone will discuss the work of Martha C. Nussbaum, especially in regards to humanity and justice.

 Rinehart, who started teaching at Gonzaga in 1974, earned a bachelor’s degree from Marymount Manhattan College, and a master’s degree and a Ph.D. from New York University. Maccarone, who started teaching at Gonzaga in 2005, earned a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University, a master’s from Colorado State University, and Ph.D. from the University of Florida.

 In addition to teaching within their respective disciplines, both Rinehart and Maccarone teach for the Gonzaga women’s and gender studies department.
