America in the Nineteenth Century, Virtually Yours

April & May Schedule

The last seven seminar sessions will feature student projects that may range across topics such as authorship, abolition, slavery, suffrage, the Civil War, the Westward Expansion, women's rights, poetry in volumes, in periodicals, and on the lecture circuit, novels in volumes, in periodicals, and online, the explosion of magazine/journal production, or any other topic of especial of interest to a seminar comrade. Projects may be individually produced or part of a group effort. Presentation times will be used to generate feedback.
