The Woman’s Century Club’s November meeting will feature Bill Woodward, PhD, award-winning professor of American and Pacific Northwest history at Seattle Pacific University.
Program description: A pandemic, protests, and economic jolts ushered in the so-called “Roaring Twenties.” Americans adjusted in ways both innovative and counterproductive. What lessons from the 1920s can we apply to our own looming 20s? Professor Woodward will chart the eerily familiar developments of a century ago: shattered idealism, social clashes, domestic terrorism, culture wars, disorienting technologies, and fearsome disease. How might stories from a particular moment in the past—one with remarkable parallels to the present—shed light on ways for us to move forward? As the 2020s unfold, what conversations should we have?
Thanks to Humanities Washington and The Steamer Virginia V Foundation for their support of this program.
