Reading Women Back Into History

Ford Center for the Performing Arts, in honor of Women’s History Month. The program will be broadcast live from the Ford Center at www.sarahisomcenter.org/readingwomen/.
Elizabeth Payne and five of her doctoral students have attracted national attention with their groundbreaking research project chronicling the oral histories of older women in north Mississippi. Payne, a professor of history at UM who teaches late-19th and early-20th century U.S. history, led seminars in 2005-06 in which five graduate students and 15 undergraduates interviewed more than 100 individuals in Union County. The goal was to record the memories of (mostly) women who came of age during the first half of the 20th century. The focus of “Makin’ Do” is the women who came of age during the World War II era. The subjects recount their experiences with the sharecropping system and race relations, as well as share how the Great Depression and industrialization affected their lives. (March 1, 2011)
