Public Program: Mac icon designer Susan Kare, May 8 at NMAH

Graphic designer Susan Kare has been called the “the Betsy Ross of the personal computer,”  the “Queen of Look and Feel,” the “Matisse of computer icons,” and the “mother of the Mac trash can.”  Kare is best known for designing the distinctive icons, typefaces, and other graphic elements that gave the Apple Macintosh its characteristic—and widely emulated—look and feel. Since then, Kare has spent the last three decades designing user interface elements for many of the leading software and Internet firms.

Call for Interviews: Canadian Working Women on Strike in the 1960s and 1970s

My name is Mason Godden and I am an M.A. student in the Canadian & Indigenous Studies program at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. My thesis explores mobilizations around key Ontario strikes involving women, or women as allies from 1965-1979. By looking at feminist labour support work, this study will contribute to an understanding of labour-community mobilizations, for example how women and men organized the families of strikers and the broader community to provide essential moral and political aid to striking workers.
