Lectures of the week

Harvard has several lectures by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, about technology and culture of New England women at the time of the revolution.

Her books include a lot of information on a woman's work in the economics of those days, and a book on Margaret Ballard, a local midwife, which was made into a PBS film.

alas, they are only "streaming" video, which is hard for us when the internet is acting up.

For those who are visually handicapped, a "Daisy" book can be downloaded from internet archives LINK

A Vimeo lecture can be found HERE.

and a google talk can be found HERE.

Yes I've read the book in the past, and one of the books I brought with me here was the age of Homespun, which is more about what women had to do in those days...
