K12 & Community College Virtual Program

March 8, 2022

Via Zoom | 4:00pm-5:30pm EST

0.5 CEU/ 5 PDCH


On March 8th, we will mark International Women’s Day with an online program on women in Renaissance England. The program will explore the exciting contributions of early modern women to scientific thinking and literature and will investigate recent research on women of color in England and Irish women as part of a larger discussion of historiography, gender, and identity. The program is designed to bring the archives alive and help middle school, high school, and community college educators bring these women’s stories into their classrooms.
