Please join me on Thursday, December 5th for the third Faculty Colloquium of the academic year. Dr. Michael Trotti, Department of History, will be presenting “Cultural History and Racial Violence: Case Studies in Why the Humanities Matter.”
Professor Trotti received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999. He explores a range of issues in the American past –political, economic, social - but he is particularly interested in pursuing the social implication of change: how developments in American history affected different people (different in class, gender, race, ethnicity.)
Pearl Ponce, Associate Professor in the Department of History, has published a chapter in a book. Her article on Kansas' Lecompton Constitution has been collected in Bleeding Kansas, Bleeding Missouri: The Long Civil War on the Border, published this month by the University Press of Kansas (http://www.kansaspress.ku.edu/newbytitle.html). This book grows out of the Border Wars Conference she was invited to in 2011.
