This presentation will explore the intersection between women’s education and the Gothic Revival style as reflected in the Mount Holyoke campus. Key topics to be discussed include why the style was selected to represent higher education in general and Mount Holyoke specifically. Additionally, the discussion will delve into the influence that the country’s preeminent landscape architecture firm, Olmsted Brothers, had on the design of the campus.

This event will be recorded and made available following the event.
