Brown Bag History Series: A Frank Journey Through Textiles
Wednesday, December 1, 2021
You are invited to the continuing "Brown Bag" series, hosted by the library, in partnership with the UNK History Department. Feel free to bring your lunch with you. This month Autumn Langemeier (UNK) will present "A Frank Journey Through Textiles."
Textiles are often displayed in museum collections as examples of period life. However, they can also be valuable sources of information for researchers. Using examples from the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture textile collection, Autumn Langemeier will discuss some of the information that can be found in textiles as well as the value of discussing textile work in historic spaces.
Autumn Langemeier has a Master of Arts in History from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. She specializes in women's history and material culture. She has designed an upcoming exhibit at the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture to discuss class in the late 1800s through the medium of textiles. She is currently teaching at the University of Nebraska at Kearney as an adjunct instructor. In her spare time, she collects vintage and antique sewing machines and other items related to needlecraft.
