ONLINE | Remembering Gender: Recovering Lives, Reshaping Intellectual Histories
WATCH THE VIDEO RECORDING OF THE PANEL HERE.
Thursday, November 12, 2020, 11:00AM to 12:00PM (EST)
Join Ellen Freeberg, Associate Dean at The New School for Social Research, and Elzbieta Matynia Professor of Sociology and Liberal Studies and Director of the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies, in a conversation about Frieda Wunderlich, the first female economist at The New School for Social Research and a founding member of the 1933 “university in exile.”
They will discuss gaps in the story surrounding Wunderlich’s intellectual journey, what it meant to recover a narrative about her work and career, and how she translated her scholarship as a labor policy expert from Germany into a U.S. context, mid-career. They will also consider what one story may tell us about how we remember (or often forget) female social scientists from the past.
