Women's Suffrage in the Americas 

12-06-2017 03:47:39 PM

Would you like to do more to include women's history in your classes?  Carthage College, in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Humanities, is offering a two-week opportunity to learn more about the history of women's suffrage in the Americas. University and community college faculty in any field are invited to explore these remarkably understudied stories. Seventeen specialists from Argentina to Canada will each present a piece of the interconnecting pattern that led to suffrage extensions across the hemisphere.  Participants will be responsible for creating one of the following: a plan to include women's suffrage history in their classes, a manuscript to further research into women's suffrage or a contribution to a collaborative digital history project that can be used in our classroom.

Participants will receive a stipend of $2,100 to cover expenses.

The campus of Carthage College, stretched along the shores of Lake Michigan, will provide a picturesque setting for a two-week, in-depth experience. We will analyze suffrage movements and the politics that surrounded them. As we examine the meaning of citizenship, we will also ask who was included and who was excluded from formal political participation, when, and why.

Adjunct and non-tenure track faculty are especially encouraged to apply. Spanish or Portuguese language fluency is helpful but not required.
