Dr. Susan Pickett, violinist and musicologist, will present the plenary address at the BYU Women's Studies Conference on "Women and Creativity." Dr. Pickett has recovered the music of hundreds of women composers from the 17th-20th centuries, and has published more than 40 editions of music by women. She and her ensemble, Donne e Doni (Women and Gifts), have performed more than 40 recitals of the music she has uncovered. Dr. Pickett's research has been featured by the Associated Press, the Chronicle of Higher Education, numerous NPR stations, and a special segment of ABC's "Good Morning America." She teaches at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.

Professors and students from universities in Utah and Idaho will present on topics relating to women's creativity from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The Museum of Peoples and Cultures and the Harold B. Lee Library will collaborate with the Women's Studies Program on activities related to the conference. The conference will take place in the Joseph F. Smith building on the BYU campus November 3-5, 2011.
