Voting Rights 1870, 1920, 1965, 2020

Conference/Seminar

In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified, granting many women in the nation the right to vote for the first time. Fifty years earlier, Utah had been among the first territories to enfranchise women. Despite these advances, the history of enfranchisement still excluded key groups, even after the Voting Rights Act of 1965. To reflect on these important anniversaries, USU's College of Humanities and Social Sciences hosts an interdisciplinary Tanner-funded symposium: Voting Rights: 1870, 1920, 1965, 2020. The keynote address is by Dr. Carol Anderson, author of One Person, No Vote, supported by USU's Center for Women & Gender. This symposium is designed to commemorate the historic events, but a to go one step further in reflecting on two important questions:
1) Who was left out of these landmark changes and with what consequences?
2) And how do we contextualize ongoing struggles for access to voting rights?
Events include scholarly papers, posters, a suffrage sing-along, and a suffrage film festival and the venues include the USU campus as well as downtown Logan.

From 3/19 at 12:00 pm to 3/20 at 10:00 pm | Eccles Conference Center | More Info
