Kimberly Alexander of the University of New Hampshire will explore the social values placed on luxury and thrift in New England in the late 18th century. What messages were telegraphed by a person’s clothing and how were these understood? Did everyone in society read these messages the same way or were there statements only meant to be understood by a select few?

There will be a pre-talk reception at 5:30.
