What Did Independence Mean For Women, 1776-1876?

A three week summer seminar for sixteen K-12 teachers on the meanings of independence for women from the writing of the Declaration of Independence to its centennial.

The Library Company of Philadelphia and Prof. Lori Ginzberg of Penn State University seek a grant of $81,907 to fund a three-week Summer Seminar for School Teachers. This seminar will bring together sixteen K-12 teachers for a close study of primary documents, scholarly readings, and historic sites to address the question "What Did Independence Mean for Women?" The seminar will explore the different meanings of independence, and how women’s experiences in the first century of the nation’s founding were shaped by their racial, legal, and class identities and statuses. Through readings, discussion, field trips, and lectures, participants will address white and black women’s experiences, think critically about the concept of independence, and consider sources that would be appropriate to their own classroom discussions of United States History. The Library Company has a successful track record of running seminars for K-12 educators and serves as an ideal place for studying these concepts.

Biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 19th-Century Feminist and Intellectual

Few American women loom as large as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, arguably the foremost feminist intellectual of the nineteenth century. Yet although the traditional narrative of the movement for woman's rights has been transformed over the past three decades, and life stories of leading activists have been written, there has been no serious biography of Stanton for twenty years. Benefitting from new scholarship in women's history and feminist political theory, and my own scholarly engagement with questions of political identity and reform activism, this biography will use Stanton's life story as a window through which to view, and reshape, the narrative of nineteenth-century feminism and American intellectual life itself.
