Dr. Stephanie Coontz joins us from Oregon to discuss her work on the history of marriage. Justice Anthony Kennedy famously cited her work in an opinion of the Supreme Court about marriage. Dr. Coontz will lead us on a journey through the changing landscape of marriage and wedding traditions in the 20th century. This lecture is paired with a wedding dress exhibit that will be available to view at the lecture. At other times the wedding dress exhibit is available to view at the Prairie Village Museum. This lecture is funded by Humanities ND.
