The complete version of this announcement of events at one of our sister institutions is available on our main blog, but I thought I’d pass along this information here:
Correspondent Lines: Poetry and Journalism in the U.S. Civil War
Sunday, April 3, at 2 p.m.
Eliza Richards, UNC-Chapel Hill
During the Civil War, new technologies such as the telegraph and the steam-powered printing press gave Americans unprecedented access to the battlefield, changing our reactions to the news and our thinking about war itself. Professor Richards explores these influences in both the literary and journalistic accounts of the time.
