CHAViC Symposium - Revere in Perspective: Artisanry, Labor, and Luxury - POSTPONED

Friday, April 17, 2020 - 9:00am

In conjunction with the AAS exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere (on view at the Worcester Art Museum and the Concord Museum during the spring of 2020), the Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAViC) will host a symposium that considers new perspectives on Revere’s versatile roles as an artisan, ranging from colonial silversmith to maker of propaganda prints to postwar manufacturer.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the symposium has been postponed until further notice. All current registrants will receive a refund.

Topics will explore labor practices and the sourcing of raw materials associated with Revere’s many products, from silver luxury goods to copper for the new nation’s naval vessels. The symposium will bring together scholars of various disciplines and perspectives.

Invited speakers will include:

  • Jennifer L. Anderson
    (Associate Professor of History, Stony Brook University (SUNY)
  • Debra Schmidt Bach
    (Curator of Decorative Arts, New-York Historical Society)
  • Steve Bullock
    (Professor of History, Worcester Polytechnic Institute)
