Fuller’s presentation, entitled “The Lady Major and the War Governor: The Politics of a Civil War Sex Scandal,” is free and open to the public. Fuller is the the second scholar this year to visit IC through the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Samantha Sauer, archivist, curator, and assistant professor of history, said that the NEH visiting scholar program has enriched campus learning experiences for many students often working with resources at IC.
“The program is an incredible opportunity to connect scholars from near and far with the unique collections at Illinois College,” she said. “Scholars have shared professional insights and research experiences with IC students and the IC community through informational interviews, classroom discussion, and public programs.”
