This lecture, which is free and open to the public, is the sixth installment of “A Moveable Feast,” an annual series of monthly lectures and performances by Armstrong's distinguished faculty in historic venues throughout downtown Savannah. “A Moveable Feast” features a wide range of topics, from the role of liberal arts in education to photography and African-American identity, among other topics.
In this lecture, Howard will draw upon her training in humanities-based historical research and lend insight into the meaning of homelessness and poverty in twentieth-century America. She will also offer a new perspective on the modern welfare system.
