'Why Must I Be The Only Woman To Lose My Birthright?’ Gender And Modernity In Upper-Class Twentieth-Century American Life, Margaret Lowe

Margaret Lowe

A 2007 CART Summer Grant would provide the critical time and resources I need to complete detailed archival for my proposed monograph: ‘Why Must I Be the Only Woman to Lose My Birthright?’ Gender and Modernity in Upper-Class Twentieth-Century American Life. A social history, this project will highlight the ways in which upper-class men and women (mostly from New England) both resisted and shaped the emergence of American modernity.

The Gilded Age & The Frontier Military: Society And Culture At Fort Assinniboine, Montana Territory, 1879 - 1905, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

Examines how the social norms of the Gilded Age and the decrease in Indian activity shaped life at Fort Assinniboine as a Victorian-era bastion of "civilization" in the Montana Territory.
