Local Histories, Global Formations: A Colloquium in Honor of Lynn Hollen Lees

Fri, 09/20/2013 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
McNeil Center for Early American Studies

Drawing upon and bridging social history and social science, Lynn has put to the test sweeping theoretical models of social change (migration, revolution, social inequality) against the findings of her archivally based historical research. Local histories, she shows, both shape and are shaped by large-scale global processes.  Our colloquium brings together Lynn’s friends, colleagues, and students to the University of Pennsylvania, the institution that she has served so well.
