Event Details

In recognition of the extreme social upheaval of World War I on the homefront, the Museum is holding a panel symposium on the role of women workers and the suppressed during WWI back in the US. Following a series of short presentations, the public is invited to participate in an exchange of ideas with panelists Dr. Glenna Matthews from Stanford University, Dr. Candace Falk from UC Berkeley, and Dr. Margo McBane from San Jose State University. The event will take place at the Bus Barn theater from 7-8:30pm and is free and open to the public.

This program is in support of “Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I“ on exhibit in the Museum’s main gallery, noon-4pm, Thursdays-Sundays, April 4-May 27, and its follow-on exhibition, “Right Here: Our Local Stories” June 1-17, 2018.
