Meredith College is pleased to announce Snapshot 20/20, a symposium to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. We will kick off the event with a keynote address on April 2, 2020 and offer concurrent panels and a range of activities with our community partners through April 5, 2020.

Snapshot 20/20 will foster international and interdisciplinary scholarship and conversations focused on the social, economic, and political status of women and girls from 1920 to 2020.

Call for Papers

Scholars and students are invited to submit papers and projects on a wide range of topics including global women’s rights and status, gender identification, issues of citizenship and activism, social welfare policy, and democracy more broadly. 

Submit your abstract to the committee using our Google Form and send inquiries to us at symposium@meredith.edu. The deadline for paper submission is January 15, 2020

Highlights of the symposium will include:

Podcasts, panels, and exhibits in collaboration with The North Carolina Museum of History.  

Meredith’s theatre program, under the direction of Professor Cathy Rodgers, is creating a devised work on woman suffrage which will be performed at both Meredith College and the N.C. Museum of History during the symposium. 

Associate Professor of Sociology Amie Hess and her students will share the 2019 edition of Meredith College's report on the Status of Girls in North Carolina
