The National Endowment for the Humanities and Carthage College invite you to apply for a professional development opportunity in women’s history this summer.

Come and explore the remarkably understudied stories of how women in the Americas achieved the suffrage. Seventeen specialists from Argentina to Canada will each present a piece of the interconnecting pattern that led to suffrage extensions across the hemisphere. 

Join us on the campus of Carthage College, stretched along the shores of Lake Michigan.  Together with our invited specialists, you will analyze suffrage movements and the politics that surrounded them.  You will examine the meaning of citizenship, and ask who was included and who was excluded from formal political participation, when, and why. 

All college and university faculty are welcome to apply, including adjunct and non-tenure track faculty and advanced graduate students already in the classroom.  Spanish or Portuguese language fluency is helpful but not required.  Learn more at suffrage.carthage.edu.
