Author of ‘Women Warriors’ to talk at Sullivan Museum’s virtual Lunch and Learn session

A presentation on Women Warriors and admissions information sessions for prospective students highlight the week-ahead schedule for Norwich University.

Monday will feature two Admissions Office chances for prospective students to learn about the university and applying for entry. A 10 to 11 a.m. session will cover international applications — what they require and how they’re reviewed. A session for prospective Drill Team members will run from 6 to 7 p.m.

Also, Monday, the Counseling and Wellness Center will help students find a moment of mellow during a virtual mindfulness meditation workshop from 2 to 3 p.m.

On Wednesday, the Sullivan Museum and History Center will host “Not Like Joan of Arc,” a virtual Lunch and Learn session. Author, speaker and historian Pamela Toler will present and discuss her book “Women Warriors: An Unexpected History.”

Toler had been scheduled to speak March 25 at Milano Ballroom, but couldn’t because of the coronavirus pandemic-triggered campus shutdown.

‘Women Warriors’ reclaims lost stories of women for whom battle was not a metaphor, debunking the pervasive claim that women do not, and should not, fight.

“Women Warriors” reclaims lost stories of women for whom battle was not a metaphor, from Vikings and African queens to cross-dressing military doctors and World War II Russian fighter pilots, debunking the pervasive claim that women do not, and should not, fight. Armed with a history doctorate, well-thumbed library cards and a large bump of curiosity, Toler will translate history for a popular audience.

Also next week, the monthlong Careerpalooza continues with a mix of employer-direct meetings presented by Handshake, a Norwich partner, and sessions by the university’s Career and Internship Center.

Career and Internship sessions will include a virtual chat with alumni from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and virtual recruiting fairs Thursdays through Oct. 31.

Companies registered for Careerpalooza include: the New York and Vermont state police, the U.S. Capitol Police; the Bristol, Vermont, and Derry, New Hampshire, police departments; U.S. Customs and Border Protection; the U.S. Coast Guard; the Town of Old Orchard Beach in Maine; Springfield, Vermont-based Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services; the Peace Corps; Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries; General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems; the University of Vermont Central Vermont Medical Center; Northwestern Medical Center; Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital; and Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, Vermont.
