Submit a proposal! Submissions to the Call for Proposals for the 2020 Virtual NJ History Conference, Battles for the Ballot: New Jersey Voting Rights, Then and Now, are due on June 26, 2020.
The history of voting rights and suffrage in New Jersey is one of competing visions of who deserves a voice in American society. For centuries, activists, policymakers, and everyday people have fought to define that vision, especially on the basis of race and gender. As New Jersey marks the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment—against the backdrop of a presidential election year and a global pandemic—Battles for the Ballot will explore how the right to vote has changed over time and the meaning of participation and representation in a democracy.
Please submit your proposal via this link by the extended deadline of June 26, 2020.
