GVSU Fall Arts Celebration presents Distinguished Academic Lecturer Rebecca Solnit

Acclaimed author Rebecca Solnit will serve as this year's Fall Arts Celebration distinguished academic lecturer at Grand Valley State University. During her presentation, Solnit will discuss the intersections between art, geography and community. A San Francisco-based writer, historian and activist, Solnit is the author of 15 books about a variety of topics, including geography, community, art, politics, hope and feminism. One of her benchmark publications, Men Explain Things to Me, is credited with launching the term "mansplaining," which describes when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending or patronizing manner. It has also been labeled as a touchstone of the feminist movement.
