From rallies against apartheid in South Africa to sit-ins in the president’s office, activism has been a key part of life at Stanford for decades. With support from the Stanford Geospatial Center, the University Archives, and the David Rumsey Map Collection, undergraduate students working with the GSE and STS have been uncovering this fascinating history. On Monday, March 5 from 3:30 to 5 pm, the David Rumsey Map Center will host an event to mark the public launch of the GSE’s mapping project on the history of activism at Stanford. Students and faculty who’ve contributed to the project will present the map to the public and provide a brief tour of the website. After these remarks, a panel of current activists and student leaders active in a variety of issues, including workers’ rights, sexual violence, and racism at campus, will discuss the state of activism at Stanford today.
