CULTURAL CANNIBALS or TWENTIETH CENTURY HEROES?:

The Case of the Christodora Settlement House

Speaker: Dr. June Hopkins, History   

 

Christodora Settlement House, established in 1897 in New York City's Lower East Side, was part of a national social movement responding to the overwhelming needs of immigrants coming to American cities seeking a better life.  This settlement house represented a uniquely feminine location that provided an entrée for middle-class white women into the male-dominated political world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  Through an investigation of the Christodora House and its remarkable founder, Christine Isobell MacColl, American history scholar June Hopkins will explore how these settlement women used materialist assumptions about women's proper place to move from a family home into the larger, more public municipal household.  She will discuss how these women had a decided impact on public policy furthering social justice, but also how some historians have criticized them for being "cultural cannibals" who imposed gendered, middle-class, and Protestant values on the immigrants they served.
