The Revolution’s Hidden Voices
Historian Kathleen DuVal, whose latest book examines America’s Revolutionary era through the eyes of those on the fringes of colonial society, will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Guy F. Goodfellow Memorial Lecture. Her talk on her book Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution is April 14 in Litrenta Lecture Hall of the John S. Toll Science Center.
Free and open to the public, the talk begins at 4:30 and will be followed by a book signing.
Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution has been nominated for the 2016 George Washington Prize. It has also won the 2015 Journal of the American Revolution Book of the Year Award and the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of New Jersey History Prize. DuVal offers a global perspective on the Revolutionary War, presenting the story of the conflict from the point of view of colonial society’s outsiders—slaves, Native Americans, women, and British loyalists living on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
A professor of history at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, DuVal has also written Interpreting a Continent: Voices from Colonial America and The Native Ground: Indians and Colonists in the Heart of the Continent. She’s been published in journals including the William and Mary Quarterly, and in the New York Times.
The Guy F. Goodfellow Memorial Lecture is sponsored by the Department of History. It was established in 1989 to honor the memory of a history professor who taught at Washington College for three decades. Each year, the series brings a distinguished historian to campus to lecture and spend time with students in emulation of Dr. Goodfellow’s vibrant teaching style.
