Family & Consumer Sciences Education Spring Event
College of Human Sciences Texas Tech University
The Family and Consumer Sciences Education program at Texas Tech University will be hosting a spring event that will pay tribute to Ellen Swallow Richards, the founder of the “human ecology” movement that later transpired into the Home Economics/ Family and Consumer Sciences profession. Long-time educator, Joyce Beery Miles, will bring Richard’s legacy to life through a one-woman stage dramatization in which she will portray this remarkable woman using a variety of Victorian-era props and dressed in attire that reflect the era. Miles will re-enact several telling chapters from Richard’s life and read from the letters written to friends, family, and colleagues that expressed the emotions and struggles during crucial crossroad moments in the life of Ellen Swallow Richards.
The event will be held the evening of April 23, 2015 on the TTU campus in room 169 at 7 pm.
