Join art historian Karen J. Leader, Ph.D., as she explores the visual culture of women during the turn of the 20th century. Examining the depiction of women in posters, broadsides, caricatures, photographs, and paintings of the time, the talk will explore how such visibility both hindered and helped women in their demand for civil rights.

Leader Ph.D. and Dr. Barbara Buhler Lynes Ph.D., NSU Art Museum Sunny Kaufman Senior Curator, will follow the lecture. Karen J. Leader is Associate Professor of Art History, and Faculty Associate in the Center for Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Florida Atlantic University. She received her BA from the University of California, Berkeley and her MA and Ph.D. at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.
