Description

The papers on this panel focus on voting rights and "voice" as a vital piece of democratic ideas and practice. Based in original archival research, the HST485 Seminar cohort will discuss their findings about UD students and faculty and community members in the greater Miami Valley who responded to conditions that restricted democratic practices. These groups participated in women's suffrage and teen voting campaigns; they created inclusive institutions for justice, like the Urban League and American Federation of Teachers locals; and they supported those fighting for political autonomy and rights in Ireland and elsewhere.
