2020-21 Wellesley Deerfield Symposium

From Suffrage to Stonewall: The Visual and Material Culture of Social Justice
Apr 23, 2021, 4 PM, Apr 24, 2021, 9 AM
Free and open to the public

The years 2019 and 2020 marked significant anniversaries for the history of social justice movements in the United States, commemorating the many reform campaigns that have taken place from the 19th century to the present. These campaigns sought political, social, economic, and cultural change and deployed visual and material culture to advance their goals.

The 2020-21 Wellesley-Deerfield Symposium will focus on research related to the wide range of artistic expression generated by social justice movements, from painting, sculpture, public performance and installation to ephemera, costume, and craft.

Friday, April 23 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 24 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
