Lunch and Learn Speaker Series – The Cult of True Womanhood – This Friday

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Once again – I wanted to pass this along for the Spartanburg County Historical Association:

Don’t miss this Friday’s Lunch & Learn Speaker Series. Dr. Tracy Revels of Wofford College presents “The Cult of True Womanhood” discussing the 19th Century ideal which American women aspired to achieve. BYOL (that’s bring your own lunch) and be ready to discuss how modern media influence our understanding of gender roles today.

Lunch & Learn is from 12:30-1:30 in the 1st floor Conference Room in the Moseley Building of the Chapman Cultural Center. That’s the same building as the History Museum and Art Museum. $5 at the door. Contact Nannie Jefferies at 864-596-3501 or for more information.

The Lunch & Learn Speaker Series is organized by the Regional History Museum, one of four sites operated by the Spartanburg County Historical Association. The Association’s mission is to explore and preserve our region’s history by collecting and sharing the stories and artifacts of the people who shaped that history. We do this by engaging visitors in unique living history programs in the city and county of Spartanburg, by inspiring learners of all ages to investigate the history that begins in their own backyard at our Regional History Museum and at our three historic sites – Walnut Grove Plantation, Price House, and Seay House, and by involving the community in the preservation and promotion of our shared past through the Spartanburg History Hub – a network of people and organizations committed to Spartanburg history.
