A Service in Thanksgiving for the Life of Constance Hall Buchanan, Monday, November 23, 2020, 12:30 pm (EST)
Constance Hall Buchanan served as director of the Women’s Studies in Religion Program and Associate Dean of Harvard Divinity School from 1977 to 1997. A trailblazer, whose leadership helped steer the school toward a more inclusive future, she inspired countless students, visiting scholars and colleagues. After her time at Harvard Divinity School, she continued her transformative influence on the study of religion as a Senior Program Officer at the Ford Foundation.
Connie’s historic impact has been observed in obituaries in the Boston Globe and the New York Times, as well as on the Harvard Divinity School website
Also see Constance Hall Buchanan’s In Memoriam on LAFF’s website. 
We look forward to gathering to celebrate Connie’s inimitable spirit with the many people whose lives she changed for the better.
