How the Factory System Unravelled Terms in Women’s Labor in the Early Industrial Era

12 PM / Free / Massachusetts Historical Society

Antebellum New England factories unleashed a representational crisis as they drew farmers' daughters out of the home. Factory women and their contemporaries entered print culture to debate the longstanding sexual associations in women's labor, which industrial work had exposed by questioning a woman's capacity for virtue when she was ungoverned by a patriarchal roof. As they protested the terms of their representation, factory women who had turned labor activists and authors also innovated on two threads of American literary discourse. By portraying the subversive power of sympathy, activist factory women both counter the terms of romantic individualism while also innovating on the sentimental tradition, depicting sympathy as an affective phenomenon capable of immediate action in the world.

Forum on Leadership and Effective Communication

5:30 PM / Free / Must RSVP / Simmons College / Paresky Conference Room

One of the most common communication errors made in today’s workplace is confusing talking with real communication. One way to avoid this is to better understand the skill of framing through which we define the meaning of “the situation here and now.” Are we in a “crisis”? Is this situation merely “a cause for concern” or should we be on “red- alert”? Am I appreciating all the stakeholders impacted? When we connect with others through our framing, we shape reality and if we “manage meaning” when others can’t, we emerge as leaders. Come hear Professor Gail Fairhurst, author of “The Power of Framing” and a leading expert in organizational communications, in a moderated discussion on communications skills professionals need to embrace to be seen as leaders. A limited number of Professor Fairhurst’s book will be available for those wishing to purchase a signed copy.
