Zara Anishanslin delivers the 2015 Goodfellow Memorial Lecture March 23 on “Devils, Cannibals and the Ghost of General Wolfe.”

CHESTERTOWN, MD—Historian Zara Anishanslin will visit Washington College on Monday, March 23, to deliver a lecture she titles “Devils, Cannibals, and the Ghost of General Wolfe: The Violent and the Macabre in the American Revolution.” The talk, which is this year’s Goodfellow Memorial Lecture, takes place at 4:30 p.m. in Litrenta Hall, Toll Science Center, and is free and open to the public. 

Anishanslin is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the New York Historical Society and an Assistant Professor of History at College of Staten Island/CUNY. Her studies focus on early American and Atlantic World History, with a particular emphasis on eighteenth-century material culture.  Her forthcoming first book, Fashioning Empire, tells the stories of four people (a New England artist, a merchant, a London weaver and a British textile designer) who are linked by one object—a 1746 portrait of a woman in a silk dress. It is scheduled to be released later this year by Yale University Press. 

The Guy F. Goodfellow Memorial Lecture Series 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.
