To support “Fraktur and the Everyday Lives of Germans in Pennsylvania and the Atlantic World, 1683–1850,” a conference organized by the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Free Library of Philadelphia. The conference aims to place Pennsylvania Germans in broader contexts and to see their fraktur as a point of entry for a much broader understanding of the significance of their art and culture.
