Long Rhode to the Vote: URI Suffrage Centennial (Virtual) Spring Series

Felon Disenfranchisement and the History of Women's Voting Rights

Pippa Holloway will discuss her research on felon disfranchisement as it relates to the history of women’s voting rights.

Pippa Holloway is the Douglas Southall Freeman Chair in History at the University of Richmond.  She is the author of Living in Infamy: Felon Disfranchisement and the History of American Citizenship (2014) and Sexuality, Politics, and Social Control in Virginia, 1920–1945 (2006). She is also the editor of Other Souths: Diversity and Difference in the U.S. South, Reconstruction to Present (2008). Her research on felon disfranchisement was supported, in part, by a Soros Justice Fellowship from the Open Society Foundations. She teaches courses in U.S. history, focusing on southern history, incarceration, LGBT history, and historical research methods. Her current research examines the right of those charged with crimes or convicted of felonies to testify in court.
