Regular Meeting September 2018

1/1

Following our Membership Meeting, we would like to invite you to our first Regular Meeting in the  new  club  year  in  September.  Our  speaker,  Dorothee  Linnemann  –  historian  and exhibition curator – will talk about “Ladies’ choice! 100 years of female voting rights” After  completing  her  studies  in  modern  history  at  the University  of  Münster, Dorothee  Linnemann worked  on  a range of cultural and historic exhibitions. Between 2006 and 2009  she  was  an  expert  team member  for  the  exhibiti on "Spectacle of Power - Rituals of Old Europe", which was co-produced  by  the  University  of  Münster  and  the  Cultural-Historic  Museum  in  Magdeburg.  She  completed  her internship in the Historic Museum in Frankfurt between 2011 and 2013. Dorothee Linnemann obtained her doctorate in 2013 at the University  of  Münster  on  the  topic "Setting  the Scene: The Politics  of  Images  of  European  Diplomacy  in  the  17th  and 18th Centuries".  (Publication is set for 2018).  Most recently,  she was involved in the new display of the permanent exhibition of the Historic Museum in Frankfurt,  and  curated  the  new  special  exhibition  "Ladies'  Choice  (1918/19)  -  Women  in Politics (2018/19)". Dorothee Linnemann will report on the "making of" the anniversary exhibition of the Historic Museum  in  Frankfurt.  This  exhibition  focuses  on  the pioneers  of  women's  voting  rights.  It follows the history of the first women's movement in its efforts to gain equality and honors the first female politicians of the Weimar Republic. Providing links to the present, the exhibition shows that this topic has not lost its relevance. Covering about 1,000 square meters in the museum, the exhibition presents historic events and protagonists from the turn of the 20th Century  up  to  the  Weimar  Republic.  The  exhibition  provides  new,  gender-historic perspectives on the Kaiser's time, the revolutionary period and the Weimar Republic, using some 450 objects sourced from international archives and museums.
