Bereaved Mothers in the Antebellum South

The Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture invites you to attend a Staff and Scholar Tea on Thursday, 25 June, at 3:00 pm in the Mary Duke Biddle Rare Book Room on the main floor of Perkins Library.  Tea and cookies will be served.

Katherine Armstrong, a Ph.D. candidate at Emory University will discuss her dissertation research.  Her project, "Children of Sorrow:  Mothers, Child Mortality and Grief in the Antebellum South," examines the tension between bereaved mothers' emotions and their understanding of what society, particularly the religious voices in society, expected of them during times of loss.  Ms. Armstrong is the recipient of a Mary Lily Research Grant.
