Cathleen D. Cahill is the Walter L. Ferree and Helen P. Ferree Professor in Middle-American History at Penn State University. Her research focuses on women’s labor and political activism. She is the author of two books, Federal Fathers & Mothers: A Social History of the US Indian Service, 1869-1933 (University of North Carolina Press, 2011) and Recasting the Vote: How Women of Color Transformed the Suffrage Movement (UNC Press 2020). She also recently co-edited the collection of essays, Indian Cities: Histories of Indigenous Urbanization (University of Oklahoma Press, 2022). She is looking forward to using her Center for Humanities and Information fellowship to explore how Black women married to US soldiers participated in national networks of communication and activism during the election of 1920. She will also be finalizing a graphic history on the transnational suffrage activism of Chinese-American women.
