Ohio University-Chillicothe will commemorate National Women’s History Month 2007 with a display of 25 quilts created by students in the Women’s Studies 100 class.

“The historically female artistry of quilt-making inspired me to create a research assignment for women’s studies students. The purpose is for students to illustrate themes that support National Women’s History Month and that promote the lives and accomplishments of influential women,” said Associate Professor of Communication Studies Lisa Wallace, Ph.D., who teaches the class.

“Previously, I had the students write a term paper, but the quilts present an opportunity for the students to showcase research in a much more creative outlet.”
