In the winter quarter of 2006, Professor Rhonda Hammer approached me with an idea for creating media that would at once enhance the women’s studies classroom and archive visual material about famous and important feminists on the UCLA campus. The first subject would be Sandra Harding, a professor in the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Sciences and a pioneer of standpoint epistemology and science studies. Over the last year and a half, both the proposed video and the Women’s Studies Media Initiative, a program designed to train women’s studies graduate students in video production and encourage future projects that would benefit undergraduates in women’s studies courses, have come to fruition.
