Never Done!: Interpreting the History of Women at Work in Massachusetts
Monday, June 2, 2014 9:00am - 4:00pm Hogan Campus Center, College of Holy Cross, Worcester (DIRECTIONS)
Keynote Address by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich - Upstairs, Downstairs, and All Around the House: Making Work Visible
At this, the tenth annual Mass History Conference we will welcome the many small historical organizations that preserve, interpret, and deepen the exploration of Massachusetts history. This anniversary conference is titled Never Done: Interpreting the History of Women at Work in Massachusetts and noted Harvard scholar Laurel Thatcher Ulrich will give the keynote. The stories of lesser-known women change-makers get lost in the larger narrative of industry, politics and conflict, but the timing is right for an examination of their tales of great and compelling variety, of lives lived with courage and determination.
The conference is widely celebrated as the best networking and skill-sharing opportunity for historians of our state culture.
