    Emily Dickinson is frequently imagined as a mysterious figure who lived inside a poetic world of her own making and showed little interest in the world outside her mind. While it is true she led a reclusive life in Amherst, Massachusetts, Dickinson nevertheless was actively involved in many of the most current intellectual, political, and cultural trends of her time through her reading, letter-writing, and interactions with socially prominent family members and friends. She was a gifted pianist, with a strong interest in the popular music of her time, and a skilled gardener of some renown.

    How did the institution of chattel slavery affect gender roles among enslaved men and women? What role does marriage play in classic antebellum African American autobiographies? This webinar will address these and other questions by analyzing the autobiographies of Jarena Lee (1836), Frederick Douglass (1845), Sojourner Truth (1850), Harriet Jacobs (1861), and Thomas H. Jones (1862). Typically, male-authored African American autobiographies of the nineteenth century emphasize individual mission or calling as the driving force in a man’s life.

  • Thu, 11/17/2016 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

    Almost everybody knows and reveres Lincoln’s qualities as a great public communicator, but teachers and students sometimes struggle to identify examples of Lincoln’s equally important successes as a political tactician. This webinar will use now easily accessible “private & confidential” correspondence between Lincoln and his political rivals to paint a fuller picture of his presidential leadership. Was Lincoln as honest and ethical behind-the-scenes as his popular legend suggests?
