Emily Warren Roebling: Historical Costumed Interpretation

Hire Emily Roebling to speak your group!

Presentations and character talks featuring Emily Roebling are customized to fit the occasion – classrooms, theaters, studios, digital platforms such as Zoom, or even site-specific walking tours.

Historical costumed interpretation is an excellent way to engage younger learners. In full character and late 19th century costume, I present well-researched, historically accurate information about the life and times of Emily Roebling and the Brooklyn Bridge. This creates an interactive, memorable learning experience that brings humanity and personality to an innovative historical figure.

When bringing the work and spirit of Emily to life, themes of my character interpretation include Brooklyn Bridge and New York City history, engineering, women in STEM, women’s education in the 19th century, women’s suffrage, and historical research methods.
