Virtual Discover Series – “In Plain Sight: Looking for Women’s History in the Archives”

September 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for an online presentation with Assistant Curator of Manuscripts Jayne Ptolemy as she explores some of the ways to uncover women’s stories within the rich collections of the Clements Library. Inspired by the centennial of the 19th Amendment, this lecture muses on the power of including the quieter histories of everyday women in our celebrations of the anniversary of women gaining the right to vote.

This program is the first of three sessions in our Fall 2020 Discover Series: Women’s History in the Archives.
