Celebration and reception in honor of Ellyn Kaschak

Read coverage of the Sept. 4, 2019, celebration held in recognition of Ellyn Uram Kaschak ’65 at Binghamton University.  

Landmark Conference, April 23-25, 2020, at Binghamton University

The Women, Peace and Security: Re-evaluating Vulnerability” Conference will take stock of women’s rights and vulnerabilities. The conference is the brainchild of Alexandra Moore, professor of English and co-director of the Human Rights Institute (HRI) at Binghamton University, colleagues at the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice at Sheffield Hallam University in the United Kingdom and a partner in South Africa. The Ellyn Uram Kaschak Institute for Social Justice for Women and Girls is joining with the HRI and the Helena Kennedy Centre to host the conference at Binghamton University.

Being held in recognition of the 20th anniversary of U.N. Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security that reaffirmed the central role of women in peace and post-conflict rebuilding, the conference will also link to the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences 70th-anniversary celebrations and recognize Kaschak’s career and generosity.
