Topic: Suffrage, Women’s Rights, and Historic Preservation in Nevada

Presenter: Alicia Barber and ZoAnn Campana

In 2020, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office received a federal grant through the National Park Service to create a Historic Context for Women’s History in Nevada, with the goal of identifying places and properties associated with women’s history and the suffrage movement in our state. Project coordinators ZoAnn Campana and Alicia Barber will discuss how they went about writing the context and how it can be put to use.

ZoAnn Campana is an architectural historian and historic preservation consultant with Kautz Environmental Consultants of Reno. She works on cultural resource and architectural history projects throughout Nevada.

Dr. Alicia Barber is a writer and historian who specializes in the cultural history and landscapes of Nevada and the American West and collaborates statewide on public history projects through her consulting firm, Stories in Place.
 

All of our virtual events are shared on Facebook, and are archived on the Library website, and YouTube.
