Fluid History: Gender, c. 1900

Around the turn of the 20th century, cross-dressing seemed to be on everyone’s mind. Science was fascinated with patients whose gender identity did not match the sex assigned at their birth, and various urban areas outlawed the wearing of clothing ascribed to the “opposite” sex, with subsequent arrests sparking sensationalistic press coverage. Join Conner Prairie as we welcome public historian Susan Ferentinos to consider what factors may have contributed to such interest and explore what insight the past can offer the present.

A series of special evenings that marry education and entertainment, thoughtfulness and humor, food and drink—all based on a chosen theme. Each guest will receive a signature cocktail based on the evening’s topic (cash bar also available), enjoy themed light appetizers, and participate in a variety of edutainment presentations designed to engage the brain. Cash bar available.

$35 members/$40 Non-members

PLEASE NOTE: For this special Chautauqua, we are opening our audience to those 16+ who may be interested in the topic. Guests under 21 must be accompanied at all times by a ticketed adult, 21+ with valid ID. Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages will be provided for underaged guests.

Presented by:
Sunking and Hotel Tango Distillery
