Allison K. Lange
I am an Assistant Professor of History at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. I completed a PhD in history at Brandeis University. In my dissertation, I analyze the visual culture of the woman's rights and woman suffrage movements in the United States from the late eighteenth century through the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the vote, in 1920. Institutions including the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Library of Congress, American Antiquarian Society, and New England Regional Fellowship Consortium have awarded me fellowships. I have presented at the national conferences, including those of the American Historical Association and Organization of American Historians. Imprint published my article, "Picturing Tradition: Images of Martha Washington in Antebellum Politics," in its fall 2012 issue.
In addition to academic research and teaching, I pursue my longstanding interest in curatorial work and public history. From May 2014 through May 2015 I assisted with the curation of an American Revolution exhibition at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library. Entitled "We Are One," the exhibition examines the outbreak of revolution using maps from the French and Indian War through the founding of Washington, DC. Previously I have worked at the Curator's Office of the Supreme Court of the United States, Milwaukee Art Museum, and Robert D. Farber University Archives and Special Collections Department at Brandeis.
