Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Sep 18, 2017
DeWitt Wallace Library 309

Rebecca Wingo, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow, will present "Using a study area of ten townships in Nebraska."  Wingo uses homestead claims filed by women either deserted by their husbands or widowed during the “proving up period;” in other words, women who did not originally intend to file claims in their own names. The study area highlights the legal and social barriers widows and abandoned wives faced as they filed their claims and received title to their land.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
