Lupack will present clips from silent films of the 1910s and 1920s and discuss the roles of women in those films and in a changing society.
This presentation will take place in the John Black Room at the Saranac Laboratory Museum, located at 89 Church Street in Saranac Lake, and light refreshments will be served. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Public Scholars program.
