    *forwarding this event*

    The Progressive Era (1890-1920) was a time when Americans of a wide range of classes, races, ethnicities, and genders worked towards social and political reform. As American women, Black Americans, and Native Americans began to gain mobility—physically, socially, politically—they used cartography to better their worlds by constructing their own geographic knowledge and sharing it to meet the needs of their communities. Christina Dando, author of Women and Cartography in the Progressive Era, will explore the ways in which these efforts are reflected in geography and mapping of the time.


    For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. All registered seats are released shortly before start time, and seats may become available at that time. A standby line will form one hour before the program.
