Southern Historians in New England
Southern Historians in New England will be meeting in ten days, on Saturday, April 12th at the Newhouse Center for the Humanities, Wellesley College.
Saturday, April 12th
11:00am - 2:00 pm
Newhouse Center for the Humanities
The two presentations will be:
Christopher Geissler (Yale University): “I knows a horse fum a mule,” Charles Stewart’s Epistemology of the Stable and
Bill Harris (University of New Hampshire): “A Plan, for instigating the Slaves to insurrection”. A chapter draft from a book in progress in Charles Town, SC, in the summer of 1775.
Their papers will be distributed to you (via e-mail) by April 6th.
On the 12th, we will begin with the first paper at 11:00 a.m., discuss for about an hour, break for lunch (which will be provided), and then continue with the second presentation until 2:00 p.m.
Since we will need to know a rough attendance count in order to provide the lunch, if you plan to attend and haven’t yet rsvp’d, we'd appreciate it if you could e-mail me (by April 6th) as well.
Again, I hope you are enjoying the spring, and that we see you on April 12th!
