The standard narrative of U.S. women's history centers around two major events; the Seneca Falls convention of 1848, and the achievement of national women's suffrage in 1920.  This workshop will explore alternative ways of introducing students to women's and gender history, connecting it to other key themes in U.S. social, economic, and political history.  The session will begin with a 40-minute lecture, drawing on recent scholarship by historians of women, gender, and sexuality.  It will then move to discussion of key concepts and turning points, and introduction of a packet of images and documents for classroom use.
