Inside the Baskin Collection at Duke

Our summer issue features curator Laura Micham's guest column on the Lisa Unger Baskin collection of women's history at Duke University. Assembled over 45 years, this collection encompasses the work of female artists, scholars, printers, publishers, laborers, scientists, authors, and political activists over 500+ years. In Baskin's words, "The unifying thread is that women have always been productive and working people and this history essentially has been hidden."

Take a two-minute tour through this extraordinary collection and meet the collector in her element.
