The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

This week the MHS offers two engaging brown-bag lunch programs.  Brown-bag lunches are free and open to the public.  Typically there is a twenty to twenty-five minute presentation, followed by an open discussion of the topic at hand.  You bring your lunch, the MHS provides beverages.

On Wednesday, 8 June, at noon current Ruth R & Alyson R. Miller Fellow Nora Doyle, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, presents her research "'A Higher Place in the Scale of Being': The Maternal Body in America, 1750-1850." 

On Friday, 10 June, also at noon New England Regional Fellowship Consortium fellow Carrie Hyde, Rutgers University, presents her research "Alienable Rights."

Also, the current exhibition History Drawn with Light has been extended through 30 June.  If you have not had a chance to visit, or if you would like to visit again, be sure to make time in June to come to the MHS. 

Finally, the Saturday building tour The History and Collections of the MHS returns this week.  Join one of our docents for a 90 minute tour starting from the front lobby at 10:00 AM on 11 June.
