Material World of Modern Segregation Symposium: St. Louis in the Long Era of Ferguson

Women's Building Formal Lounge, Washington University in St. Louis,



The MWMS project collaborators  will get together to share initial research discoveries and written drafts, explore common insights and questions, and consider emergent project-level ideas and arguments that will be relevant to the book publication. Contributors will also engage with students enrolled in the “Material World of Modern Segregation” course (students will participate in a few of the Friday sessions).

The Friday morning plenary and morning and early afternoon panels will be open to project contributors, partners and invited guests from the Washington University community, students from the MWMS course, and AMCS/Olin Library project collaborators. The remainder of the sessions and the Olin archive and site visits will be closed-session, limited to MWMS contributors and Olin Library collaborators. 

Supported by the Ferguson Academic Seed Fund and the American Culture Studies Program, Washington University in St. Louis.
