Interpreting American History

A GRADUATE WORKSHOP AND LECTURE SERIES AT RUTGERS 2016-2017

Legacies of Liberalism: Rethinking Reform in the 19th and 20th Century United States

Join us for the seventh annual Interpreting American History Lecture Series at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. This series probes a wide range of issues in American History.

This coming academic year, we will host three scholars who will share their keen insights and innovative work to help us confront official and accepted narratives of social, legal, economic and artistic reforms in the 19th and 20th century United States.

Scholars will give public lectures and lead small graduate workshops. The graduate luncheon workshops work to bring together an interdisciplinary group of graduate students to engage each other on methodologies, theories, and source materials. The luncheons will be held at 1:00 PM. The wider Rutgers community is invited to the afternoon public lectures, which allow the visiting scholars to speak on their own research as connected to the annual theme.
