Marguerite’s activities as a resident scholar include organizing the first Tillie K. Lubin Symposium, as well as sponsoring lecture series on women and human rights and on environmental racism.

She continues to organize panels for Women’s History Month and has had two collaborative exhibits at the Dreitzer Gallery and one at the gallery in the Women’ Studies Research Center.
I spent the year researching the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as interviewing more than 25 veterans and members of their families. I researched the health care they received, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the suicide of the veterans.
