Gertrude Stein: Suffragist, Librettist, Modernist, or Nazi Collaborator? (London)
July 21, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Mary Chapman (University of British Columbia) discusses Stein’s opera The Mother of Us All, putatively a portrait of suffragist Susan B. Anthony in postbellum America but, Chapman argues, the opera also gives Stein an opportunity to consider her own political role in Vichy France prior to the enfranchisement of French women.
