Contact: Sarah, 217-243-5435
Location: Jacksonville Public Library Meeting Room
Description: 19th century women left few records and are often lost to history. Jenny Barker-Devine, Associate Professor of History at Illinois College, will discuss the efforts of archivists, librarians, and historians to recover the voices of ordinary women who lived long ago and will share her own work to situate the stories of Jacksonville women in broader national networks and movements of the 19th century.
