Dr. Robin Morris

LANSING, Mich. – LCC’s History Program will continue its Visiting History Scholar series with keynote speaker Dr. Robin Morris from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 20.
The Visiting History Scholar series allows LCC students, faculty, staff and the general public to learn from a historian working on relevant and engaging historical research. Dr. Morris will deliver her address, “Goldwater Girls to Reagan Women: Gender, Georgia, and the Growth of the New Right.”
“We are celebrating 10 years of the Visiting History Scholar series at Lansing Community College," LCC History Professor Anne Heutsche said. “This series is one way to bring new history scholarship to a larger audience. We look forward to engaging LCC and the broader Lansing community in discussing topics that address relevant issues of equity, justice and diversity by placing them within their historical context.”
Dr. Morris is an Associate Professor of History at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. She holds a Ph.D. in History from Yale University, a master’s in Southern Studies from the University of Mississippi, and a bachelor’s from Queens University of Charlotte. Morris recently published the book “Goldwater Girls to Reagan Women” with University of Georgia Press, in which she argues that conservative women laid the foundation for the New Right. The book traces women’s political activism from the foundation of the Georgia Federation of Republican Women in the 1950s through the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1980s.
The student discussion and teaching conversation will occur on April 21 from 10-11 a.m. and noon-2 p.m.
