Tea with the Jesuits: Crossings and Dwellings

Friday, September 12, 2014 3:00 PM

Description

Crossings and Dwellings transports visitors to a time when the Midwest was the epicenter of transatlantic exchange. Flemish-, French-, and German-speaking Jesuits and women religious emigrated from Europe to help settle new urban immigrant communities. At the same time, they looked westward and engaged indigenous peoples. Stephen Schloesser, S.J., professor of history and curator of the exhibition, will take us on a visual journey through the 19th- and 20th centuries in Saint Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and parts of Indian Country in the Midwest, Upper West, and Northwest, as seen through the eyes of the Jesuits, BVMs, and RSCJs.
