Description

We invite you to join us on Friday December 1st from 12:00-1:30 for our second meeting of our university seminar, Mobilities and Migrations: the 19th Century and Beyond. We are excited to be hosting Elaine Showalter, who will give an informal talk about her new work on the travels and travel writing of Julia Ward Howe. This meeting will be held in room B114 of the District House, located at 2121 H Street in Foggy Bottom (about half a block), across the street from Gelman Library (see below for directions). We will provide a light lunch for attendees!


Due to space and budget limitations, we will need to limit the number of guests to 25, and ask attendees to please RSVP no later than Monday November 27th.


Transportation:

Public transportation is the easiest option around George Washington University.


From the Foggy Bottom/GWU stop (Blue, Silver, and Orange Lines), turn right at the top of the escalator and walk down 23rd Street until you come to H Street (1 block). Turn left on H Street and walk until you reach 2121 (about a block and a half). The District House will be on your left. If you reach 21st Street you have gone too far. (According to Google Maps, this is about a 7 minute walk.)


From the Farragut North stop (Red Line), walk half a block to the Connecticut Ave/L Street intersection, turn right down L Street and walk 4 blocks to 21st Street, turn left down 19th Street and walk to H Street (which is after Pennsylvania Ave.). Take a right onto H Street and continue about 3 1/2 blocks until you see the District House on your right. (According to Google Maps, this is about a 15 minute walk.)


Once you enter the District House off of H Street, head downstairs to the basement (B) level and you will find room B114 to the left.


Street parking is available, but spots are in high demand and frequently unavailable. GWU maintains a number of paid parking garages in the area, the Marvin Center Garage, on H Street between 21st and 22nd, is the closest to the District House. Rates here: https://transportation.gwu.edu/visitors.
