Presented by Tracy J. Prince, Ph.D., Affiliated
Research Professor at Portland State University’s American Indian
The story of Portland, Oregon, like much of history, has usually
been told with a focus on male leaders. This presentation offers a
reframing of Portland's history-- including information on 10,000 years of
Native American women, pioneer women, women of the Progressive Era, WWI, WWII,
and post-war women, with additional tales of women in the arts and women in
politics. Hear how these women made their mark and radically changed the
Oregon frontier. This presentation, based on author Tracy Prince’s latest book,
Notable Women of Portland, will give you an in-depth
understanding of women, throughout history, credited for making Portland what
it is today.
About the Speaker:
Tracy J. Prince, Ph.D., Affiliated Research Professor at
Portland State University’s American Indian Teacher Program, is the author
of Portland’s Goose Hollow and Culture Wars in British
Literature and co-author of Portland’s Slabtown. She and
her daughter Zadie Schaffer (a 10th grader at Lincoln High School)
were inspired by fascinating nuggets of Portland history to shine more
light on the women who shaped Oregon.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
