Since we have so many areas around the world with only a very few members, we are posting the list of featured events which the HAA emails to subscribers each month. It is one way we are able to help members meet alums in their areas and possibly expand our membership to develop stronger communities.

Feeling the Way to Truth: Women, Reason, and the Development of Early Modern Philosophy

Part of the 2018–2019 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Christia Mercer RI '19

Free and open to the public.

While at Radcliffe, Christia Mercer is writing a book about the important contributions late medieval women made to the development of modern philosophy. She argues that we need to rethink core assumptions about the development of modern philosophy and that the writings of women played a much more significant role in its development than has been recognized. Relying on scholarship by literary and intellectual historians and her own research on early modern spiritual meditations, methodology, and the philosophies of both Teresa of Ávila (1515–1582) and Anne Conway (1631–1679), Mercer contends that the history of philosophy needs to be rewritten.

Grand Old Women and Modern Girls

Generational and Racial Conflict in the US Women's Rights Movement, 1870–1920

Part of the 2018–2019 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Corinne T. Field RI '19

Free and open to the public.

While at Radcliffe, Corinne T. Field will draw on the collections of the Schlesinger Library to explore the history of generational conflict among woman suffragists. She will place suffragists’ understandings of age within a broader context—particularly the spread of evolutionary social science, the rise of Jim Crow, and debates over what the nation owed veterans of the Civil War—in order to explain how a faction of younger, white suffragists gained power by entrenching both age and racial segregation in their organizations.
