A celebration of Elena Cornaro Piscopia, the first woman to obtain a doctorate that includes a visiting lecture and an original theater piece by Kairos Italy Theater.

2018 marks the 340th anniversary of the conferring of a doctorate degree to a woman for the first time in history. On June 25th, 1678 Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia, member of a Venetian patrician family, brilliantly defended her dissertation in front of university professors, political dignitaries, and common folks. This milestone in the history of women’s achievements has been immortalized in the central stained-glass window of the Frederick Ferris Thompson Memorial Library, at Vassar College.
