Interpreting American History

A GRADUATE WORKSHOP AND LECTURE SERIES AT RUTGERS
THEME FOR 2011-2012

GEOGRAPHIES OF IDENTITY


Join us for the second year of Interpreting American History. This year’s series “Geographies of Identity” engages questions around the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, and physical or cultural space in American history.


“Geographies of Identity” will host four visiting scholars in the 2011-2012 academic year. Visiting 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.
