I am pleased to announce that Dr. Judith Giesberg has just been selected as the Spring 2014 speaker for the The Steven and Janice Brose Distinguished Lecture Series in the Civil War Era at Penn State University.
Judy will deliver three lectures dealing with the impact of the Civil War on families and changing ideas of childhood in America. The series, titled The Civil War’s Lost Boys and Girls combines Judy’s research specialties in Civil War era history and the history of childhood in America. As many of you know, Judy teaches a popular and innovative course, which she developed at Villanova, on the history of childhood in America.
The revised lectures will be published by the University of North Carolina Press.
The Brose series is sponsored by the Richards Center for Civil War Era History at Penn State and was created through an endowment from Steven and Janice Brose in 1998.
