2018 MESDA Summer Institute Student LecturesJuly 13, 2018 Winston-Salem, NC
For forty-two years the MESDA Summer Institute has trained the next generation of southern decorative arts scholars. Please join us at 9:30AM on Friday, July 13 as the 2018 MESDA Summer Institute students present their original research. The 2018 Summer Institute emphasizes the Carolina and Georgia Lowcountry, a region of tremendous cultural diversity that included America’s wealthiest landholders and merchants as well as the huge enslaved work force upon which that world depended. The focus this year will be on African American material culture and landscapes, considered through a multidisciplinary approach that includes current methods of research, interpretation, preservation, and analysis of material culture.
