Gender & Popular Culture: 1650-1750 ConferenceThe interplay between high and low cultural forms and the flux and flow of still often porous gender positions have been among the most energetically researched and richly theorized features of early modern culture in recent years. This conference brought together established historians and literary scholars to explore the intersections of gender and popular culture over a hundred-year period that was pivotal in the emergence of modern understandings of these two conceptual categories. The pioneering research assembled at this conference and in the edited volume that followed focused renewed attention on the profound transformations that defined the cultural lexicon and life experience of non-elite women and men in the post-renaissance period.
This project involved the creation of all printed promotional materials for the conference. Printed materials were to coordinate with the conference concept and website designed by Tonya Howe. Unique challenges of this project involved working with multiple engravings by William Hogarth and getting them to look like one intentional, unified, and complete work in the finished piece, and being limited to working with only two spot colors.
