March Lunch & Learn | Women’s History Month

When: Thursday, March 21 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Where: Zoom


Did you know that not only was nineteenth-century St. Louis a bustling photography destination, but it was also home to hundreds of female photographers!? For Women’s History Month, we are excited to welcome Dr. Elizabeth Eikmann, whose presentation explores the early history of women’s photography and highlights the lives and professional careers of several St. Louis women whose impressive work started right here in Missouri.

Dr. Eikmann is an expert in St. Louis history, women’s history and the history of photography. She is a teacher, scholar, and public historian with experience working with museums, public libraries, universities, and the local tourism industry. She currently serves as a Program Coordinator at Washington University in St. Louis and is working on her book project, In Her Image: Women’s Photography in Turn-of-the-Century St. Louis, which explores the role of white practitioners of photography in the linking of racial identification and vision. She has extensive experience as a local tour guide, university instructor, and public educational speaker.
