London – Documenting Women’s History: Suffrage in UK/US


Info Sessions:

Tuesday, September 15 – 12:30pm-1pm and 3:30pm-4pm: Both sessions in Bliss 147

Course Description:

This section of this course examines the relationships between the US Suffrage Movement and the British Suffrage Movement. In the early 20th century the US woman suffrage movement took a more radical and aggressive turn as young leaders, such as Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, came to prominence in the movement.  These young women learned these tactics from their experiences as protégés of the leaders of the English movement, the Pankhursts.  Designed as a faculty led study abroad experience, this course will allow students to explore the ideological and logistical roots of the US Suffrage Movement by studying the English Suffrage Movement. Learning experiences will focus on classroom lectures/discussions, museum exhibits, visits to historical sites of importance to the movement and the possibility of archival research.
