Description

Heidi Herr, the outreach librarian for Special Collections at Johns Hopkins University, will interview several students about their experiences researching the Women's Suffrage Movement and share examples of their work. Ivy Xun, class of '23, has been co-curating a special exhibition on the passage of the 19th amendment, which features historic postcards and other cultural artifacts in the Sheridan Libraries extensive collection. Graduate student Laurel Poolman and doctoral candidate Nandini Dey will share details regarding the ArcGIS StoryMap they have created to highlight the sequence of the movement, the seemingly easy victories, and the hard-fought electoral battles for women's right to vote. Learn more about the speakers online.

Tune in to the livestream on Aug. 11.
