Brown Bag "Pious Females" and "Good Schools": Transnational Networks of Education in Nineteenth-Century Liberia 23 April 2014.Wednesday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM this event is free Marie Stango, University of Michigan

This project examines the networks of men and women who helped support education efforts in the American settlements in Liberia, West Africa. These philanthropists, many of them based in Massachusetts, helped establish formal and informal schools in the former American colonies and planned for a college, which opened for classes as Liberia College (now the University of Liberia) in 1863. How did these American sponsors manage an institution over four thousand miles away?
