2020 William Morris Events in the United States

2020 Dunlap Fellowship Winner: Anna Flinchbaugh

The William Morris Society in the U.S. was pleased to award the 2020 Dunlap Fellowship to Anna Flinchbaugh. Ms. Flinchbaugh holds a BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from Middlebury College. She is currently a candidate in Pratt Institute's M.S.L.I.S. and M.A. History of Art and Design program. Her research focuses on late nineteenth and early twentieth century textile design history.

MLA 2020: Panels Sponsored by the William Morris Society U.S.

WMS-US sponsored two sessions at the Modern Language Association Convention to be held in Seattle, WA, in January 2020. Our first session, “Re-evaluating the Pre-Raphaelites,” examined how in the past decade a number of exhibitions from Manchester to Moscow have reassessed Pre-Raphaelite art and design, from William Holman Hunt and the Pre-Raphaelite Vision at the Manchester Art Gallery in 2009 to the traveling exhibition Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement at venues through 2021

Our second session, "Ecosocialism and the Late Victorians" (co-sponsored with Association for the Study of Literature and Environment), addressed how the late nineteenth century saw writers, artists, and thinkers such as William Morris help plant the seeds of ecological concerns in socialist politics, leading to innovative approaches to both environmental and socialist ideas. The papers in this session explore the ways (literary, artistic, political) that resultant ecosocialist impulses influenced or grew out of late Victorian culture.
