Reconsidering the Roles of Women on the Chesapeake (Fall Speaker Series 2019)

October 23, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Reconsidering the Roles of Women on the Chesapeake
Wednesday, Oct. 23, 5:30pm
Women have played significant roles in the fisheries, maritime industries, and communities along the Chesapeake Bay, yet their stories are often missing from the historical record and in historical narratives. Associate Curator of Collections Jenifer Dolde will discuss the portrayals of Chesapeake women from the CBMM collection as captured by the lenses of well-known photographers, cultural historians, and ordinary people, and suggest new ways to interpret women’s place in the history of our region.
Part of the Fall Speaker Series: Women On Land and On Sea
