EAU CLAIRE — A University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire alumna and Fulbright Scholar will return to campus next month to discuss international feminism and to share information about her work in Cambodia.

Writer, artist and speaker Anne Elizabeth Moore will speak at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 in Davies Theatre.

Moore's presentation, "Bringing Punk to Phnom Penh: Zines, Feminism, and Human Rights," will focus on issues related to international feminism and her time spent in Cambodia. Moore introduced zines, an outlet for feminist activism, to Cambodian women and girls. She wrote "Cambodian Grrrl," the first in a series of four volumes about independent culture, globalization and women's rights in Southeast Asia.

Moore, who graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 1993 with a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography, is a Fulbright scholar and a columnist for "Truthout." A teacher at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she works with young women in Cambodia on independent media projects, and her work is frequently exhibited as conceptual art.

UW-Eau Claire's Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center will host the event, which is free and open to the public.
