Recent Trends in Civil War History

Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Programs for Teachers
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

In this seminar, participants will read three pieces that either take new approaches to Civil War history, or reflect critically on the ways that historians are addressing the period. We will be interested in exploring the  innovative methodologies or theoretical approaches used by scholars to ask and answer new questions. Of particular concern for these readings will be issues of gender, memory-construction, and the persistent interest of scholars in the event.

Seminar led by Margaret Storey, DePaul University
