Middlebury College Professor of History, Amy Morsman explores the complex perspectives and attitudes within the woman suffrage movement and showcases points of convergence as well as moments of discord, when identity shaped suffragists’ decisions about priorities, privilege, and the way to win the vote. Discussion to follow the presentation.
DR. MORSMAN is focused on the historical evolution of gender roles, race relations, and regional differences. Fresh from curating the “Votes . . . for Women?” exhibit with Middlebury College Museum of Art she’s now engaged in a digital history project building from the true story told in Twelve Years a Slave, examining race relations in the southern and northern communities at the center of that narrative.
