LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – A mid-century advertising market is the focus of the next colloquium with Rebecca Hartman, Ph.D. at EOU Thursday, Feb. 27.
“Trailer Park Queens: Images of Gender, Class and Leisure in Mid-Century Mobile Home Advertising” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception with question and answer session will follow.
Hartman, an associate professor of history, examines mobile home advertising campaigns of the 1950s and 1960s that both featured women prominently and were often directed toward women consumers. Her research is part of a larger, book-length chronicle of the mobile home and the trailer park in the United States from the 1930s to the present.
