Sewanee's Slavery-Race Project Attending Universities Studying Slavery Meeting at Hollins University
Research Associate Tanner Potts and Director Woody Register will present on Project's First Year of Work
Four members of Sewanee's Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation will attend the spring meeting of Universities Studying Slavery at Hollins University, April 12-14.
USS is an international consortium of public and private institutions that have begun examining the “historical and contemporary issues dealing with race and inequality” on their respective campuses. It meets annually in the fall and spring. The University of the South joined the consortium in September 2016.
The Sewanee team going to Roanoke for this spring's meeting consists of Project director Woody Register, C'80, Francis S. Houghteling Professor of American History; Tanner Potts, C'15, Project Research Associate; Hannah Pommersheim, T'19, Seminarian and Postulant, Episcopal Diocese of Texas; and Dr. Jody Allen, visiting assistant professor of history who is teaching at Sewanee this year from William & Mary, where she directs the Lemon Project, that university's slavery study.
Register and Potts will be making presentations on the work Sewanee's Project has accomplished in its first year and its plans for the coming summer and academic year.
