Schedule of Upcoming Talks:

How Revising History Shaped the American Revolution
Mon, December 7 | 5:00–6:00 pm | Free  

Were the founders "revisionist historians?" Before the American Revolution, most British American colonists thought of British history as their own, but by 1800 that was no longer the case. Join us as Benjamin Carp hosts Michael D. Hattem, talk about how Americans' ideas about British history and their own colonial history changed during the revolutionary era, the creation of "American history" as part of the Revolution, and the important role of revising history in the founding of the republic.

African American Visual Culture in the 19th Century
Fri, December 11 | 5:00 - 6:00 pm | Free  

How were slaves represented visually after their emancipation? Join us for a discussion between Amanda Bellows—whose new book American Slavery and Russian Serfdom in the Post-Emancipation Imagination grew, in part, out of work she did while at the New-York Historical—and Aston Gonzalez, who’s new book, Visualizing Equality: African American Rights and Visual Culture in the Nineteenth Century. We hope you can join us for this fascinating program.

Fellowships at the New-York Historical Society are made possible by Bernard and Irene Schwartz, Helen and Robert Appel, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
