Meredith College, located in Raleigh, N.C., is pleased to announce our Call for Papers for Snapshot 20/20, a symposium to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Snapshot 20/20 will foster international and interdisciplinary scholarship and conversations focused on the social, economic, and political status of girls and women over the past 100 years.

We will open the event with a keynote address on Thursday, April 2 and will offer concurrent panels, presentations, and performances with our community partners through Sunday, April 5.

Scholars and students are invited to submit papers and projects on a wide range of topics regarding women's rights and status around the globe, including voting and democracy, issues of citizenship and activism, gender identification, and social welfare policy. Individual papers and projects, as well as complete panels and roundtable discussions, are welcome.
