Summer Seminar on Picturing Reform

Picturing Reform:

How Images Transformed America, 1830-1880

June 19-24, 2011

Worcester, Massachusetts

The Center for Historic American Visual Culture is sponsoring a Summer Seminar that will will focus on the history of print production in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; interpreting portrait paintings, prints, and photographs; “reading” illustrations in popular journals; and related topics.  Participants will also have access to the varied collections of visual materials of the American Antiquarian Society to pursue their own interests.

The seminar will be led by Louis P. Masur, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of American Institutions and Values at Trinity College, along with other faculty.  The cost of the seminar will be $750 with some financial aid available for graduate students.  Housing will be at a hotel within walking distance; the room rate is about $100 per night plus taxes. Participants can share rooms at a considerable savings.

The deadline for applications to the seminar is March 18, 2011.
