2023 Keynote Speaker

We'll have a virtual keynote lecture on Tuesday, March 21, at 7 p.m. CST on Zoom. Dr. Kimberly Hamlin, an OAH Distinguished Lecturer, will deliver a keynote lecture about "#MeToo, Carry Nation, and Why it's Time to Revisit the History of the Temperance Movement." In history textbooks and popular imagination, the temperance movement often gets a bad rap. This talk urges listeners to reconsider the temperance movement and what it stood for. At the core, temperance leaders fought not just alcohol but also “the degradation of women.” Temperance leaders’ critiques of the sexual double standard and their strategies to dismantle it increasingly resonate today.
