Dorothea Lange, famed photographer of the Depression, is subject of lecture

After the food trucks have left and before Happy Hour, a serious lecture on the life of esteemed photographer Dorothea Lange will be held Monday at the ultra-serious Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Dr. Linda Gordon, an award-winning historian and professor at New York University, will discuss the work, politics and life of one of the country’s cultural icons. Gordon, twice a Bancroft Prize winner, garnered the award for her “Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits.’

The lecture starts at 4 p.m. at the center’s headquarters at 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. The event is open to the public and is co-sponsored by the center and the National Women’s History Museum.
