Description

Many people spoke for – and against – woman’s right to vote in the United States. These speeches are terrific opportunities to understand how activists argue for an absolutely fundamental civil right. They also show us how even progressive activists sometimes rely on conservative ideas in their paths to social change. Let’s look together at the slippery boundaries between binaries such as inclusion and exclusion, progressive and conservative, and also seemingly self-evident identities like “woman,” “white,” “healthy,” and “middle-class.” Sure, these speeches led to the 19th Amendment. What else did these speeches do, and undo? We’ll connect to the November U.S. elections, and lots more in our every-day-worlds.

Course Requirements:

This course is a gameful course, which means students can select from a menu of assignments, try different activities, and collect points as they move through the semester.
