As we look ahead to November, voting rights have never been a more important part of the national conversation. But what are the best ways to engage the public on this vital issue? And how can academic work make a real difference in how we understand the history of the vote and its meaning today? Join us for a conversation on suffrage movements, voting rights, and the role the public humanities can play in widening the scope of academic research today.
