About the speakers:

Anastasia Taylor-Lind is an English-Swedish photographer whose work focuses largely on women, birth rights, population and war. She is a contributor to National Geographic magazine and a TED Fellow. In 2014, she published her first book, Maidan – Portraits from the Black Square, which documents the Ukrainian uprising in Kiev. Her images have been exhibited in spaces such as the Saatchi Gallery, the Frontline Club, and the National Portrait Gallery in London. Her award-winning work has appeared in GEO, Time, The New Yorker, The Sunday Times Magazine, Telegraph magazine and Vanity Fair. She is a Ruth Cowan Nash Nieman Fellow. Nash was best known for her work as an Associated Press war correspondent during World War II.

At Harvard, Taylor-Lind will study the ways women are portrayed in ancient and modern conflict.


Susan Hackley is managing director of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School (PON), a consortium program of Harvard, MIT, and Tufts University.

She is producing a documentary film called “A Child’s Guide to War,” about the impact of war on America’s children and families. The film is part of a broader outreach project to help bridge the civilian – military divide – so that all Americans can talk about war in ways that are collaborative and not polarizing.

Previously she co-founded an Internet company,, that enabled people to connect and contribute to causes they cared about. She also served as Communications Director of the Massachusetts Democratic Party.

Susan has served as Chair of the Alliance for Peacebuilding, a Washington, D.C.-based organization dedicated to building sustainable peace and security worldwide, and she is currently on the board of Trustees for Alaska, an Alaska-based public interest environmental law firm.
