UW, PhD candidate, Joy Huntington will present from her dissertation, on the history and impact of women on Madison’s development as a community. In a time when monuments and landmarks are under attack for the racist history of our past, it’s clear that landscapes and the objects that fill them have the power to tell stories. In an attempt to uncover the stories of this particular landscape, Ms. Huntington will examine the role of women Madison in creating the community we inhabit and experience today. Who were these women? What are their stories? Why is it important to know them? And ultimately, by moving beyond the dominant story of the men of Madison, what other stories can the landscape tell us about ourselves?
