Marla Miller, Professor of History and Director of the Public History Program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, explored the lives of working women in Federal-era Hadley, Massachusetts, in her November 13 lecture for the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. Her talk, "Mopboards and Meetinghouses: Charting Geographies of Labor in Federal New England," drew upon material culture and landscape and continued the Institute's 2013-15 theme, "Materials of History."
On November 14, Professor Miller joined Jonathan Farr, Anna Topolska, and ToniAnn Trevino for the workshop, "Engaging Publics Across Time and Space." Focusing on public history, the panel was chaired by Gregory Dowd.
