Grand Old Women and Modern Girls | Corinne T. Field || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2018–2019 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Corinne T. Field RI '19 explores the history of generational and racial conflict in the US women's rights movement from 1870 to 1920.

Field is an associate professor of women, gender, and sexuality at the University of Virginia. Her research explores the intersections of age, gender, and race in US history, focusing in particular on the political dimensions of adulthood in debates over women's rights and racial justice.
