Several people stand near each other outside.

Take a walk with Dr. Katherine Jellison around Uptown Athens to learn about some of the women who were foundational in the development of unique and colorful Athens, Ohio. Jellison will share stories of struggle and triumph as she takes us back in time, guiding us on the paths of historical women who successfully pursued their goals. Dr. Katherine Jellison has won several teaching honors at Ohio University, including the Excellence in Feminist Pedagogy Award, the University Professor Award, the Jeannette G. Grasselli Brown Faculty Teaching Award in the Social Sciences, and designation as a Fellow in the Charles J. Ping Institute for the Teaching of the Humanities.
