Description

Professor David Faldet (Luther College, Iowa) and Dr Sara Atwood (Portland State University, Oregon) will be discussing with Dr John Blewitt the reasons why many Americans find John Ruskin and William Morris relevant and interesting today. Topics will include the arts and crafts movement the environment, education, gender, social economics and what William Morris would make of Iowa today.
