The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women's Suffrage Movement, 1848-1889
Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 7:30 p.m.
Jean Center Auditorium
As part of the college's celebration of the anniversary next year of the passage of the 19th Amendment, Dr. Lisa Tetrault, Professor of History and author of "The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women's Suffrage Movements 1848-1898," will speak on the struggles among suffragists to claim the past and future of the movement. Her talk focuses on the ways that our forgetting of the internal struggles within the suffrage movement makes it look more "inevitable" and like less the real political work than it was. She will also discuss Reconstruction politics and the conflicts between enfranchising black men and/or women.
This talk is sponsored by the Gregory J. Grappone Humanities Center.
A Celebration of Audre Lorde, Movie and Discussion
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 6 p.m.
Film: "The Edge of Each Other's Battles: The Vision of Audrey Lorde"
The much loved and inspiring Audre Lorde, author of 15 books of poetry and prose, was an internationally influential catalyst for social justice within and among social movements including Black Liberation, Women's Liberation and Gay and Lesbian Liberation. The film includes speeches, reminiscences and footage from the conference, "I Am Yours Sisters: Forging Global Connections Across Difference," which brought 1200 activists, youth, men and women together in 1990 and used Lorde's work to address trans cultural understandings of race, gender, sexuality and class.
