Lunch Talk in New Haven: Lucretia Mott, the World's Anti-Slavery Convention, and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement

NEW HAVEN, CT - Sorry for the short notice...I just learned that The Gilder Lerhman Center is pleased to announce an upcoming Fellows Brown Bag Lunch Talk. Bring your lunch and they'll provide the drinks and dessert!

  • What: The 1840 World's Anti-Slavery Convention as the birthplace of the women's rights movement. Looking at Lucretia Mott's too seldom used diary, Faulkner tries to recover the true history of the WASC and demonstrates how Mott saw the meeting not only as a contest over women's rights, but as part of a broader struggle over religious orthodoxy, moral authority, and individual rights.
  • Who (is speaking): Carol Faulkner, Assistant Professor of History at SUNY Geneseo and Postdoctoral Associate at the Gilder Lehrman Center
  • Who (may attend): Everyone who's interested
  • When: Monday, April 17, 2006 at 12:00 pm., Eastern Time
  • Where: Luce Hall, Room 10334 Hillhouse Avenue at the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition in New Haven, CT 06520-8206
