Ortiz launches conversation series

UPDATE: Event rescheduled for March 8 due to storm


Jennifer M. Ortiz, manager for the Oregon City’s McLoughlin Memorial Association, is kicking off a series of salons at Marylhurst University where the citizens are invited to think about important topics.

From 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 8, join Ortiz for a conversation on how women in history inform our cooperative relationships within communities, organizations and democracy. In her discussion titled “Women’s History and Contemporary Social Ethics,” she also will discuss the subject of her master’s thesis, Jane Addams — social philosopher and progressive reformer — and her commitment to a “sphere of action.”

Based in the original home of city founder John McLoughlin, the McLoughlin Memorial Association is a heritage preservation organization first initiated by Oregon author and suffragist, Eva Emory Dye in 1909.

The Marylhurst University Graduation Program in Interdisciplinary Studies, from which Ortiz graduated in 2012, is hosting this free once-a-month Salon/Conversation Series through June and is encouraging the public to attend the events on the Marylhurst Campus, 17600 Pacific Highway, Lake Oswego, Clark Commons in the Willow Room.
