“Creating Citizenship in the 19th Century South and Beyond” is an international symposium which will be held at the University of Florida January 15-17, 2009. It will consider the following questions: How historically significant are the South's changing ideas about citizenship rights and responsibilities—and about the relationships between local, regional, and national identities—particularly when viewed in comparative national and transnational perspectives?
This symposium is part of a larger international Research Network that is dedicated to exploring the signal importance of the American South in shaping American history and the nature of the region's political, economic, ideological, cultural and military connections to the rest of the world. Speakers include Daina Berry, David Brown, Trevor Burnard, Susan Castillo, Sarah Cornell, Laura Edwards, Thavolia Glymph, Nancy Hewitt, Coleman Hutchison, Watson Jennison, Susanna Lee, Chandra Manning, Sharon Monteith, Michael O’Brien, Dylan Penningroth, Scott Romine, Aaron Sheehan-Dean, and Emily West.
