The Hearst Fellows Symposium

July 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free with admission. Refreshments to follow.

Come to our Symposium, as this year’s Hearst scholars present original research on America in the 1830s.
Each summer, The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum hosts the Hearst Research Fellows —generously funded by the Hearst Foundation. This year’s Fellows are Oberlin University’s Max Ripps, who looks at 19th century popular culture, exploring the connections between westward expansion, and rapid urbanization with early 19th-century art, theater and literature. From Williams College, Isaiah Krugman, explores finance and banking in 19th-century New York City, specifically tracing the increased influx of goods into the city after the completion of the Erie Canal to the rise of financial institutions serving as “middle men” between merchants and consumers. Free with admission. Refreshments to follow.
