Moveable Feast: "Homeless: Poverty and Place in Urban America"
Thursday, March 27, 2014 | 6 p.m. | 501 Whitaker Street
Ella Howard, Assistant Professor of History
During the twentieth century, many homeless Americans lived on skid rows, the best known of which was New York City's Bowery. Such spaces became more than urban poverty zones. Over time, they came to define the people who lived there. As she draws upon her training in humanities-based historical research, Howard will lend insight into the meaning of homelessness and poverty in twentieth-century America and offer us a new perspective on the modern welfare system. The lecture is a part of “A Moveable Feast,” a fall-to-spring series of monthly lectures and performances by its distinguished faculty, ferrying you into a variety of historic venues in beautiful downtown Savannah.
