Transcribing Painting and Photography into Word – using the Visual Arts to inspire character and story

Mary Louise Hill

Monday, March 7, 2022 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Dr. Mary Louise Hill has recently completed her first historical novel, Doubly Cursed, which is an immigration story beginning in 1861 in Prussian-occupied Poland and ending in 1901 in Buffalo, New York. While writing, she painted watercolors of rural Polish landscapes, cottages, public buildings, and interiors, to help with creating authentic descriptions. Doubly Cursed was conceived as the first in a two-book family history. She is now working on the second book, set exclusively in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. While painting continues to be a valuable tool for Dr. Hill, photographs have assumed a primary inspirational role. Margaret Bourke-White’s photographs of 1920s Cleveland inform her tone and mood; historic photos and maps provide details of place; and family photos are helping inspire characters. Dr. Hill will present examples of each for this presentation, and end with a brief reading. Co-Sponsored with Women's History Month.

Catherine Sanchez

Disability is an intersectional facet of identity that is often overlooked or uncommunicated when we are taught history, even history about people who were advocating for their rights. Catherine Sanchez's presentation will focus on general American history through the lens of women and disability while highlighting specific stories of disabled female-identifying activists from various backgrounds. Co-Sponsored with Women's History Month.
