Complete Course Title: Women, Religion, and Social Change in Chicago and the Midwest

This is a one time FREE course

This program will examine the work of women from Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish traditions in and around Chicago, mainly in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Schedule:

9 to 9:20 am: Coffee

9:20-9:45 am: Introduction by Ann Durkin Keating

9:45-10:10 am: Mary Beth Connolly, “Souls are Trained and Prepared for the Other”: The Mercy Charism and Catholic Female Education in Chicago, 1840s-1940s, A Comparative Study”

This talk will explore the emergence of Chicago Jewish women into public roles within American Judaism and the city of Chicago. As leaders in the creation of the first national Jewish women’s organization, Chicago Jewish women in the 1890s opened the first channels for on-going public activism and identities for Jewish women across the United States. 

As advocates for progressive reform in Chicago, Jewish women helped to transform the city in matters ranging from the provision of public health measures for school children to the creation of public beaches for the city as a whole.

10:10-10:35 am: Rachel Bohlman, “Frances Willard and Gospel Temperance Politics in Illinois during the Gilded Age”

The Woman’s Christian Temperance Union in Chicago and in Illinois used gospel temperance meetings-revival-type services that ended in dramatic and very public temperance pledge signing-to advance their political reforms. 

The women offered a gospel message of forgiveness while insisting that their male converts pledge their public support for the women’s temperance reforms. Willard and her fellow reformers used these commitments to claim new rights for women and for changes in political and family culture.

10:35-10:55 am: Break

10:55-11:20 am: Karla Goldman, “With a capital ‘J’ and a capital ‘W’: The Emergence of Chicago Jewish Women in the Work of Political, Religious, and Social Reform”

This talk will explore the emergence of Chicago Jewish women into public roles within American Judaism and the city of Chicago. As leaders in the creation of the first national Jewish women’s organization, Chicago Jewish women in the 1890s opened the first channels for on-going public activism and identities for Jewish women across the United States. 

As advocates for progressive reform in Chicago, Jewish women helped to transform the city in matters ranging from the provision of public health measures for school children to the creation of public beaches for the city as a whole.

11:20-11:45 am: Wallace Best

11:45 am-1 pm Panel discussion and Q&A, moderated by Ann Durkin Keating
