DescriptionTo mark the thirtieth anniversary of 'Signs: journal of women in culture and society' and the arrival of its editorial office at Rutgers University, Douglass Library hosted a celebration that included a panel discussion with past journal editors and an archival exhibition. The editors came together to discuss their experiences during the journal's formative years through its later accreditation as a top international journal in women's studies. They conveyed the significance of Signs throughout their careers, underscoring its influence in the institutionalization of women's studies in academia. The exhibition included items from the Signs Archives within Rutgers Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives that trace the emergence and development of the feminist intellectual community and the critical role played by Rutgers scholars in the process.
