Maggie Nettesheim Hoffmann, associate director of career diversity for the Humanities Without Walls consortium and a Ph.D. candidate in history, will talk about the historical transformation of philanthropy in the United States during the Gilded Age and Progressive era. The presentation will explore some of philanthropy’s notable moments during this period, including a linguistic shift in ways Americans used the term “philanthropy” to the development of legal philanthropic trusts foundations.
