The Littlefield Lectures, UT Austin

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be delivering this year’s Littlefield Lectures for the History Department of the University of Texas, Austin.  The lectures are based on research from my last two books, The Free State of Jones, and The Long Shadow of the Civil War:
“The Free State of Jones: Community, Race, and Kinship in Civil War Mississippi,” March 6, 4-6 p.m., Avaya Auditorium, ACE 2.302

“Communities at War”: Men, Women, and the Legacies of Anti-Confederate Dissent,” March 7, 4-6 p.m., Avaya Auditorium, ACE 2.302

If you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!

  1. Sorry to hear you won’t be up my way. The subcurrents of opinion and allegiances you raise are fascinating.

    Glad you liked the blog. I’ve put up 40 so far. They were originally aimed at my primarily Latino and Asian immigrant readers, but now 2/3 of my readers appear to be native born Civil War folks. Still my favorite experience is when I see a discussion of The Immigrants’ Civil War series going on in Spanish.


  2. I am so very sorry I missed this! I would have made the trip from Houston just to hear these stories from your mouth! What a Loss – I will keep better tabs on your blog! Please post the next time you are in the great state of TEXAS!!!


    • Well, I’m sure sorry you missed it, too, Kimberly! The lectures were enthusiastically received, and I especially love it when people who are already interested come to them.
