LLC30: Culture and Democracy in Nineteenth-Century New York
A group of 19th-Century scholars interested in studying and bringing to life the dynamic interplay of race, gender, reform, religion, politics, art, and literature in 19th-century New York.
Active since: 2019
Open to New People
- Syracuse University
- Cornell University
The Working Group has been restricted from meeting since Fall 2019 because of the pandemic. The Group first sought to host a couple of speakers that could energize faculty and graduate students, and did so on March 11 and April, 2022. The Group also met as a group on April 30, 2022, to introduce ourselves and to discuss another planning meeting for Fall 2022 (tentative date: September 23-24, 2022). The idea was to brainstorm about possibilities for both Fall 2022 and Fall 2023 in and around Ithaca, New York. The Workin Group is also planning a more public event for Fall 2023.
