Humanities In The Village: Elizabeth Bronwyn Boyd

The Ivy Bookshop, Bird in Hand, and the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute at Johns Hopkins University present the latest installment of Humanities in the Village, featuring Elizabeth Boyd and her new book, Southern Beauty: Race, Ritual, and Memory in the Modern South!

This event will take place indoors, at Bird in Hand Coffee & Books.

Southern Beauty explains a curiosity: why a feminine ideal rooted in the nineteenth century continues to enjoy currency well into the twenty-first. Elizabeth Bronwyn Boyd examines how the continuation of certain gender rituals in the American South has served to perpetuate racism, sexism, and classism.

Elizabeth Bronwyn Boyd is an independent scholar who lives in Takoma Park, Maryland.
