On March 19-21, 2014, historians from Latin America, Europe, and the United States are converging in Columbia, South Carolina to examine: American Civil Wars - The Entangled Histories of the United States, Latin America, and Europe in the 1860s.
Sponsored by generous grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and USC’s History Center, this conference will bring together leading specialists of various areas to reinterpret the quintessentially American conflict between North and South as part of an international web of war, imperialism, revolution, and emancipation that enveloped the Atlantic world in the 1860s.
The conference is free and open to faculty and graduate students.
All those wishing to attend should register in advance.
Conference papers will be summarized by the presenters and will be available online to registered participants.
