In conjunction with the exhibition “Home Front: Daily Life in the Civil War North,” the Newberry and the Terra Foundation for American Art are co-sponsoring a symposium to present new scholarship on the Civil War. The exhibition and symposium are made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
The symposium begins with a lecture by Sarah Burns on Thursday evening, October 17, and will continue on Friday, October 18, with two panels of scholars, separated by a second lecture by Bruce Levine. The symposium will be held in Ruggles Hall at the Newberry Library, and all sessions are open to the public.
