Engaged Learning Forum | Building Civic Learning: Lessons from the 19th Amendment in the Context of the November Election

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:15am
Christina Wolbrecht, Ph.D., Department of Political Science, University of Notre Dame,
Jay Brandenberger, Ph.D., Center for Social Concerns

Lulama (Lulu) Moyo, M.A., Center for Social Concerns

Christina Wolbrecht, Ph.D., will discuss historical and current electoral trends in the context of the anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the coming national election. What can history tell us about the struggle for voting rights today? How can previous elections help us understand the historic 2020 election? How can we help our students make sense of this specific political moment, what some have called a 'stunningly teachable moment about the importance of democracy”?

Christina Wolbrecht is professor of political science and director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy. Her recent co-authored book, A Century of Votes for Women: American Elections Since Suffrage (Cambridge 2020), examines how women voted across the first 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Two of her earlier works were recognized with national book awards. Wolbrecht has authored articles on women as political role models, the representation of women, and partisan position-taking on education policy. She is co-editor of the journal Politics & Gender
