Women?s History Series, Church History Library

By June 18, 2010

The Church History Library will be holding a Women’s History Lecture Series for the second half of 2010. It begins 8 July with a lecture by Chad Orton, CHL archivist, titled “Those They Left Behind: Experiences of Missionary Wives and Children, Unsung Heroes of the Restoration”. Knowing the caliber of these lecturers and their work, the lectures will in no doubt prove to shed new light on subtopics within LDS women’s history. The poster below provides more details about the lecture series.

  2. Very cool. I am envious of those within striking distance.

  3. This looks great. Thanks for the announcement, Ardis. Perhaps we could get someone from the blog to attend and report on at least a few of these?

  4. Looks awesome. I actually hope to be in town during the week Jill is presenting, so that would really be a treat. All presentations look great.

  5. I think I’m out of the picture on this unfortunately. The 8th is our Seminar Symposium and I’m likely out by Aug. 12.

    But hopefully Brett or Ardis can…or will they be made available online later, Ardis?

  7. I believe that the lectures will be posted online fairly soon after they occur. I’ll post online about any I am able to attend (I live down in Utah Valley and usually take the bus, so my ability to be in SLC at 7 pm may be limited). But I’ll also explore perhaps getting lecture notes from some of the presenters to post on JI previous to the availability of the videos.

  8. Awesome, Ardis, thanks! And please keep us abreast of any developments in their being posted online.

  10. Do you know if any of the transcripts will be available, or if they were filmed at all? Thanks for posting about this.

  11. Some of these sound like what I’ve been listening to on the Legacy Series on Mormon Radio — anyone know if where to find a recording of the lecture? I’d love to listen!
