My colleague and I would like to organize a panel that focuses on Southern Womens Suffrage for the 73rd annual meeting of the Southern Historical Association to be held in Richmond, Virginia in 2007. We are currently looking for a third panel participant. The tentative session title is "New Approaches to Southern Woman Suffrage." Jessica Brannon-Wranosky is a Ph.D student and teaching fellow with the history department at the University of North Texas and her topic will focus on Texas women's suffrage with emphasis on male political interest in the suffrage movement. I am currently a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University and my paper will focus on womens suffrage in Richmond Virginia with emphasis on the activities of Adele Clark and the issues faced by suffragists in Richmond Virginia in the shadow of dominant male southern traditions and white supremacy. The goal of the session is to examine suffrage in the southern states and how the suffrage movement was influenced or affected by greater southern issues. Interested parties should email their ideas by August 30, 2006. Thank you.
