Chicago Teachers as Scholars

On the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth, seminar participants will consider what we choose to remember and what we choose to forget about our sixteenth president. We will consider many topics that influenced Lincoln as a man and a politician, with a special focus on race, slavery, and the Civil War. Our seminar meetings will include tours of two exhibitions: /With Malice Towards None/, organized by the Library of Congress and on view at the Newberry Library, and /Abraham Lincoln Transformed/ curated by Olivia Mahoney for the Chicago History Museum.

Seminar led by Daniel Greene, Newberry Library and Libby Mahoney, Chicago History Museum
