Come join us for Oregon History 101, a nine-month public history lecture series sponsored by the Oregon Encyclopedia Project, the Oregon Historical Society, and McMenamins. I'm honored to be a part of this great series, which has met with great success in its fall presentations.
I'll be presenting on Women in the Progressive Era on Monday, February 2, 2015 at 7:00 at McMenamin's Kennedy School. The event is free and open to the public. I'll cover some of the topics you might expect, including woman suffrage and Esther Lovejoy, but also feature some of the complexities of the movements for eugenics and prohibition and focus on my new research on women, civil liberties, and the surveillance state.
