June 27-  WWIN at Chatfield 7:30-9:30 AM. Presentation on women's history by Briann Greenfield, Executive Director of the Harriett Beecher Stowe Center.

 

Why is Harriet Beecher Stowe Relevant Today?
 
In an era of sound bites and tweets, why should we care about a 400-page novel and its nineteenth-century author? What lessons can they teach us about empathy, community, gender, and racism?  In this program, we will explore Harriet Beecher Stowe's journey as the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, a book that became the bestselling novel of the nineteenth century.  We'll also learn why it's important that we continue to preserve Stowe's memory and how doing so today strengthens our own pluralistic society. 
 
Briann G. Greenfield is Executive Director of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, an innovative historic house museum that promotes vibrant discussion of Stowe’s life and work and inspires commitment to social justice and positive change.  From 2014 to June 2018, Dr. Greenfield, was Executive Director of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities,  Previously, Dr. Greenfield was Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University. Dr. Greenfield received her M.A. in Museum Studies and her Ph.D. in American Studies from Brown University. She has held fellowships from the Smithsonian Institution and the National Endowment for the Humanities and Winterthur Museum.
