The Society for Historians of Early American History and the Massachusetts Historical Society cordially invite graduate students, faculty, and other interested parties to a SHEAR Regional Seminar on Thursday, October 2, 2:00-4:00, to meet with Daniel Howe, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815-1848.
The regional seminar will be informal, with Professor Howe spending about 20 minutes explaining what he was trying to accomplish in the book, followed by a broad ranging discussion of the book and United States history in the first half of the nineteenth century. Participants are encouraged to come to the seminar having read What Hath God Wrought (or given the length of the book, sections of What Hath God Wrought ) with the idea of asking questions of the author.
The intent of the regional seminar is to build bridges between senior scholars and regional academic audiences and foster greater interest in the period covered by SHEAR. Membership in SHEAR is not required to attend the seminar, but we would ask all participants to consider joining SHEAR in the future.
If you plan to attend the program, please let us know in advance: telephone 617-646-0518 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
