UNH Manchester: Brown Bag Discussion Series

Robert Macieski, associate professor of history, will present “Portraying Child Labor in New England” Wednesday, Sep. 27, as part of UNH Manchester’s Brown Bag Discussion Series. Macieski will explore the New England work of Lewis W. Hine, one of the nation’s most important documentary photographers. Between 1907 and 1917, Hine traveled the country on behalf of the National Child Labor Committee, photographing children who worked in assorted occupations and performed a wide range of tasks. Professor Macieski will examine the ways these powerful portraits of child labor shaped, and continue to shape, our understanding of childhood in the early twentieth century. The event will be held in the University Center Auditorium, third floor, from 12-1 p.m. The talk is free and open to the public.
