YOUNG SCHOLARS LECTURES* Saturday, November 12, 2:00 pm

Katrina Reynolds, Lois F. McNeil Fellow, Winterthur Rediscovering the Formula: Interpreting a Stenciled Pelerine in the Winterthur Collection Winterthur is home to a possible nineteenth-century pelerine (a cape- like collar) embellished with stenciled and embroidered botanical motifs. Two centuries after its creation, this wonderful and mysterious garment continues to confound experts, stretching how we understand nineteenth-century fashion, craft, and identity. Through historical and scientific analysis, Reynolds investigates how material scholars can rediscover and interpret the hands, minds, and “formulas” behind the textile’s creation.

Ethan Snyder, Lois F. McNeil Fellow, Winterthur A Long Space Race: Contextualizing Early (Human) Flight in Eighteenth-Century Material Culture Snyder explores the presentation of human hopes and fears through a plate that depicts Vincenzo Lunardi’s ballooning in the late eighteenth century and connects them to the burgeoning global network of eighteenth-century capitalism, the space race of the Cold War, and the current billionaire space race, as well as issues of individualism, climate, and the future of humanity, and capitalism.
