On Sunday, February 11, 2018, the Oneida Community Mansion House has scheduled “Early Resistance: Women, Religion, and Politics,” a discussion with Professor Marcia Robinson of Syracuse University about the role women played in the changing political culture of the United States through support of abolition and the women’s rights movement.
The discussion will consider the various goals, strategies and tensions in the fight for equality.
Robinson is an Assistant Professor of Religion at Syracuse University. She specializes in the history of Western Christian thought and culture, with an emphasis on 19th-century Europe and America. Her current research project is about Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, an African-American abolitionist, suffragist, and writer.
General admission to the program is $7 for adults and $3 for students with ID. Members of the Oneida Community Mansion House are admitted for no additional donation. The discussion is part of the 2018 series, “Beyond Belief: Religion in American Life” held monthly from January-May.
The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave, Oneida. For more information call (315) 363-0745 or visit their website.
