  • Feb 11, 2016 - Postcards from Atlanta: Announcing the February Issue of Perspectives on History

    Perspectives continues its tradition of devoting the February issue to capturing the spirit of the annual meeting just past. AHA16 in Atlanta was a resounding success—we heard praise on everything from the quality of the panels to the quality of the food at receptions. But the best thing about the annual meeting, no matter the year, is the historians who initiate those panels, who pack those receptions—who constitute the essence of the AHA and the future of the discipline. Imagine a family reunion where everyone is a history nerd.

Anthony’s jaunts.” If we could map Anthony’s 1883 trip through England, Ireland, and France, for instance, we might be able to bring the transnational dimensions of the 19th-century women’s suffrage movement into sharper focus.

Anthony’s postcards from Europe, Courtesy of the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections and Preservation, University of Rochester River Campus Libraries (https://rbscp.lib.rochester.edu/1450) Ware then reached back a little further, to 1840, when seven delegates who’d journeyed from the United States to London to participate in the World Anti-Slavery Convention were denied entry on account of their gender and forced to watch the proceedings from a balcony in the conference hall.
