Hopkins to Deliver A Moveable Feast Lecture at Massey School

(March 8, 2016) Armstrong will host A Moveable Feast faculty lecture featuring history professor Dr. June Hopkins on Thursday, March 10 at 6 p.m. at The Massey School Classroom, located at 207 East Gordon Street.

The lecture, "Cultural Cannibals or Twentieth Century Heroes?: The Case of Christodora Settlement House," will explore how middle-class, educated women entered into the public sphere using the settlement house as a gateway institution.  Although the emphasis was on Americanizing their immigrant neighbors, Hopkins will discuss how these women found a political voice and influenced social policies. Hopkins’ research interests include welfare history, the Great Depression and World War II. Hopkins has a Ph.D. in History from Georgetown University. This event is free and open to the public.
