Event Information:

Lecture by Tina Hirsch Sheller, Assistant Professor of History and Historic Preservation at Goucher College Historian Tina Sheller will detail Goucher College’s activist past through materials from Special Collections and Archives. In the first decades of the twentieth century, dozens of students and faculty took part in marches, protests, and pickets for women’s suffrage, while college administration struggled to come up with a firm stance on the matter. Sheller’s recent project to uncover the story brought together Goucher alumnae with the college librarian and the curator for special collections, and reclaimed a proud part of Goucher's history as an outstanding women’s college. 
Free & open to the public. Limited seating. Reservation strongly recommended.
