This program will examine the work of women from Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish traditions in and around Chicago, mainly in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
The panel will explore connections between religious practice and social activism in the lives of Midwestern women and their communities.
This program bridges two major interdisciplinary projects at the Newberry, Religious Change, 1450-1700 and What is the Midwest? The projects are generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
