“Reconstructing: A Life Amidst Ruins”

Stephanie McCurry, Columbia University

There will be a pre-circulated paper for this workshop, that will be available approximately one-week prior to the workshop. This workshop is open to the public.

Stephanie McCurry, Professor of History at Columbia University, specializes in the nineteenth-century United States, the American South, the American Civil War and the history of women and gender.  Current interests include the history of the United States in the immediate post-Civil War moment, the history of postwar societies and processes of reconstruction in the 19th and 20th centuries, and the matter of marriage, politics and the state in the modern period.

The Modern America Workshop is cosponsored by the Center for Collaborative History, Program in American Studies, Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism & the Humanities, and the Land, Property, and Power in the Modern Metropolis graduate workshop.
