Susan Goodier to participate in NEH Summer Seminar

Susan Goodier, Phd, lecturer in the History Department, will participate in a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar, “Suffrage in the Americas.” The seminar will be held at Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin from July 23 to August 3.

The emphasis of the seminar is on the “intersections between class, race, gender, and transnational organizing.” Members of the visiting faculty include scholars focusing on women’s suffrage histories of all regions of the Americas. Goodier will work to develop pedagogical materials to promote teaching women’s suffrage through an intersectional and transnational approach and assist with a project to develop web-based tools for understanding the intersectional and transnational history of women’s suffrage in the Americas.
