Bloomers? Manners? Music? An Exciting New Look at the Life and Times of Our Namesake!

Look out for a brand new course this spring: WST 201/MUR 203 Susan B. Anthony and Her World. In this class you will explore the physical, material, and cultural world that shaped Susan B. Anthony’s life and her work through local field trips, in-depth discussions, and visiting lecturers. In addition to looking at the major political issues that occupied Anthony—women’s rights, abolition, and temperance—the class will explore the social and cultural world of America during the century between Anthony’s birth (1820) and the adoption of the 19th Amendment (1920). Visiting in-class lecturers will include Dr. Gayle V. Fischer (author of Pantaloons and Power), Mrs. Judith Martin (better known as nationally syndicated columnist “Miss Manners”), Carolyn Ducey (Curator of Collections at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum), and Deane L. Root (the Fletcher Hodges, Jr. Curator at the Center for American Music). Email sbai@rochester.edu with any questions.
