The New Woman: Gretchen, Girl, Garçonne
July 22, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This virtual event is organized by DANK Haus German American Cultural Center. For the most updated information and to RSVP, visit their event and registration page.
This event will take place at 7pm Central Time, 8pm Eastern Time.
Who was the New Woman, and how was she received? The New Woman embodies the complex nature of Weimar Germany—a society thriving with culture yet paralyzed by uncertainty. A paradox herself, the New Woman is a dramatic illustration of both liberation and lasting discrimination, independence and anxiety. Join your friends at the DANK Haus and invited panelists for a critical analysis of gender representations in Weimar media. From film to fashion, newspapers to novels, we will examine a variety of female archetypes and consider their role in reflecting the social, political, and economic climate of the Weimar era.
This event is free and will be held on Zoom. You will receive the Zoom login the day before the event or day-of. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
