Archaeology of Children at the Rhode Island State Home and School

October 13, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Yellow Cottage
600 Mt Pleasant Ave
Providence, RI 2908 United States


Rhode Island College professor Pierre Morenon will discuss the archaeology and history of children, particularly indigenous children, who once resided in custodial institutions, such as the Rhode Island State Home and School, which housed dependent and neglected children from 1885-1979. His research provides intimate glimpses of daily life in this state institution, which shaped generations of Rhode Islanders. Join him for an outdoor walking tour of the former State Home property and historic Chapin Mansion (4:00- 6:30 PM) and/or attend his follow-up lecture and slideshow (7:00-8:30 PM) in one of the State Home cottages.
