This Week @ MHS

We are offering a couple of lunch time programs this week. Bring your lunch and join us in the Dowse Library for on of the following.

Monday, 23 July at noon listen as Andrew W. Mellon research fellow Benjamin Wright, Rice University, shares his insights into "Conversion and Antislavery, 1750-1830." Wright's project examines how ideologies of conversion directed the tactics of early antislavery reformers and how changes in these ideologies transformed antislavery into abolitionism.

Wednesday, 25 July at noon Malcolm and Mildred Freiberg research fellow Katherine Grandjean, Wellesley College, discusses her research into the relationship between the wars plaguing New England’s northern frontier and the rise of the press at the turn of the eighteenth century with "Terror ubique tremor: Communicating Terror in Early New England, 1677-1713."

And on Saturday, 28 July do not miss "The History and Collections of the MHS," our regular building tour. The 90-minute tour departs our front lobby promptly at 10:00.
