Much ink has been spilled on the need to make U.S. history more transnational. In this seminar, participants will read and discuss the historical literature that places the 19th century women’s movement in a global context. Whether in terms of suffrage or temperance, this emerging work will help participants think about how to incorporate gender into lessons that focus on U.S. in the world and vice versa.     

Seminar led by Jennifer Brier, University of Illinois at Chicago
