Description

William Morris was one of the most influential artists, writers, and political activists of the 19th century. Reflecting on Morris's art, literature, and political writings, this talk will consider how Morris might help us understand and respond to some of the most pressing issues of our own era, from globalization and environmentalism to gender equality, the nature of work, and the vital importance of art in human life.
