Dr. Yael Sternhell, Associate Professor of History and American Studies at Tel Aviv University, Israel, will explore the unexpectedly fascinating backstory of the wartime documents that became the Official Records. You’ll never think of the Official Records or any other Civil War document the same way again. As Sternhell will show, even what we consider hard historical facts were shaped by the politics and personalities in the archive.
The lecture will take place in the International Center Commons, Weinstein International Center, University of Richmond. See building #52 and parking area R19 and R20 on the University of Richmond campus parking map.
