July 2021

I am scheduled to present at the 2021 Thoreau Society Annual Gathering in Concord, Massachusetts. My presentation is focused on another women's rights milestone this year, the 170th anniversary of the First National Women's Rights Convention, held in Worcester, Massachusetts in October 1850. The title of my planned paper is "The Future Leader in the Movement": Mourning Margaret Fuller at the First National Women's Rights Convention, Worcester, 1850.

The overall theme of the 2021 conference is "Thoreau and Diversity: People, Principles, and Politics," and I am so looking forward to our special guest and conference keynote speaker, anti-racist historian and activist Ibram X. Kendi!
