Our honored guest speaker is Dr. Lisa Tetrault, Associate Professor in the Department of History at Pittsburg’s Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Tetrault published the landmark, The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women’s Movement, 1848-1898, in 2014, which garnered the Organization of American Historians’ first Nickliss women’s history book prize.

Dr. Tetrault is a highly-respected educator as well. In 2018, she received her Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences Elliot Dunlap Smith Teaching Award. And more recently, in 2019, she delivered the keynote address for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s “Votes for Women” Exhibit. She currently serves as an historical consultant for, among other projects, PBS’s upcoming The American Experience documentary “The Vote.”

Dr. Tetrault’s Holley Lecture is entitled, “The Fight by Remembering: The Making of a Suffrage Archive.”
