The Historical Society’s third national conference will take place on May 16-18, 2002 in Atlanta, Georgia. Focused on the theme of Historical Reconstructions, the conference features panels on topics that range from the ancient Near East to post-Soviet Russia. The conference as a whole seeks to broaden our understanding of the process of reconstructions in history well beyond the customary focus on nineteenth-century America (though this important subject is by no means neglected). Highlights include two plenary sessions—Seymour Drescher and David Landes will offer global perspectives on economic development, and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese will provide a summary discussion of reconstructions—and this year’s Christopher Lasch Lecture, which will be delivered by Natalie Zemon Davis.
