Immigration and the South Jersey Glass Tradition Symposium


Date(s) - 10/24/20 - 10/26/20
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM


Join us online to explore South Jersey’s immigration patterns, the history of the glass industry in the region, and applications of traditional European techniques in today’s glass studios. We are bringing together scholars of different disciplines – folklorists, historians, glass historians, and artists – to develop future research project questions and new partnerships based on the discussions at the intersection of these fields and themes. Registration for this virtual symposium is FREE! After registration, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom webinar. Participants may join and rejoin the webinars at any time during the scheduled presentations. This symposium is presented in partnership between the Down Jersey Folklife Center and the Museum of American Glass with support from the New Jersey Historical Commission.
