"Pockets of Time: The Gendered History of How We Carry Things👗" by Susan Curtis
This talk will be presented by Susan Curtis, collections manager of the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection at NDSU. Ask any woman how she feels about the pockets in her clothing, and you will get a strong response. Sharing images of historic clothing from various museums, including the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection, Curtis will explore how the pocket developed in European and American clothing and how it became a point of contention among women in the twentieth century.
The event will be held on Tuesday, September 12 at 6pm in the Hjemkomst Theatre.
