The Jones Library and University of Massachusetts Press are proud to present a panel discussion on "New England’s Political Histories, Contradictions, and Controversies" on Thursday, October 12.
Erin O’Brien, chair of the Political Science Department at UMass-Boston, will facilitate a conversation about the inherent complexities and contradictions in New England political life, from early democratic reforms to late twentieth-century witch-hunts, and the entrenched inequalities of today.
The panel features three UMass Press authors:
- Eric J. Morser, The Fires of New England: A Story of Protest and Rebellion in Antebellum America (UMass Press)
- Mark Robert Schneider, Gerry Studds: America’s First Openly Gay Congressman (UMass Press)
- Jason Sokol, All Eyes Are Upon Us: Race and Politics from Boston to Brooklyn (UMass Press)
Free and open to the public.
