Description TRANSCRIPT

Professor Ann Snitow is interviewed by Professor Julia Foulkes and University Archivist Wendy Scheir on the second floor of Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, New York City. Snitow describes her own personal education history leading up to her involvement with the founding of Eugene Lang College at the New School. This includes graduate school in London, as well as her early work as an educator at Livingston College at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. She also discusses her involvement in 1960s and 1970s feminist movements, among them Redstockings, and a radio show on WBAI, called “Womankind.” Snitow elaborates on the academic structure and politics of the New School at the time, as well as the ambitions and aims of Lang’s founding faculty, and the early curriculum there.
