  • June 17 - New York, NY (ZOOM)
    ART GLASS FORUM, New YorR.Black Women's Contributions to American Glass, J. Maupin
    American glass factories have historically been harsh workplaces, often staffed by boys as young as eight. But in the 1920s, as legal bans on child labor took effect, Black women were hired for positions once held by children, and they battled physical and emotional hazards on the job. On the evening of June 17, R.J. Maupin, a student at the Bard Graduate Center in New York, will lecture for the Art Glass Forum | New York on her groundbreaking research into how these women navigated racism and misogyny. Ms. Maupin is the 2024 winner of the Art Glass Forum’s Emerging Scholars contest.
    Glassmakers starting in the early 1900s assigned tasks to African American women, such as clamping molds around molten glass and shuttling unfinished pieces among the factories’ more “skilled” employees. Due to offensive racial stereotypes about heat tolerance, Black women were subjected to some of the workplaces’ highest temperatures and longest shifts. White women were tasked with more delicate jobs, such as painting or packing glass. Maupin has analyzed trade journals, glassworker publications, and documentary photographs by Lewis Wickes Hine. Her talk will explore controversies around employment of Black women and manufacturers’ efforts to create exploitative race-, gender-, and age-based hierarchies, which have shaped the glass industry into contemporary times.
    About the speaker. R.J. Maupin, who earned her BA at Elon University in North Carolina, is slated to receive an MA from the Bard Graduate Center in 2025. She has worked at cultural institutions including the Mint Museum of Art and Hot Glass Alley in Charlotte, N.C. Her lectures and publications have covered topics ranging from medieval church windows to uranium glass and contemporary art incorporating mirrors.
