The Civil War @ 150
Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 3, 2011, 6:00-8:00 pm and join ASHP/CML in the Martin Segal Theatre at the CUNY Graduate Center for the first of three public seminars on the sesquicentennial of the start of the U.S. Civil War. Supported by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities and organized in collaboration with the Ph.D. Program in History at the Graduate Center, this series will bring together leading scholars and educators to discuss recent trends in the study of the conflict, the gap between scholarly and popular understanding of the war, and how photography continues to shape its meaning. We begin on February 3rd with “Did the Real War Ever Get in the Books?” with Bruce Levine (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Stephanie McCurry (University of Pennsylvania), James Oakes (The Graduate Center, CUNY), and Gregory Downs (City College of New York, CUNY).
