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

Wellesley College

Newhouse Center for the Humanities

Wellesley, MA

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!
