Please Join Us for the Draper Workshop Series for Spring 2018:
“History and The Law”
This workshop will feature scholars of history and law, who will share their current research to demonstrate the value of interdisciplinary approaches to both areas of study. It will focus on how the law has helped construct and deconstruct notions of servitude, race, and citizenship in American history.

At the Southern Historical Association’s 2016 meeting, as I shambled by booksellers—sluggish from both a lack of coffee and a need for more coffee—I encountered a table about Union Army Data and the Historical Urban Ecological GIS Data Set. Though the website (http://uadata.org/) indicates that Robert W. Fogel initiated the project through a 1992 grant, it remained under my radar until the SHA meeting.
So I must ask:
Has anyone done much work with this material? If not why?
Would anyone be interested in using the data?
I am looking for a co-author for a book project I have been working on for several years: the topic is notions of evil (Satan, hell, devils) in various facets of the Civil War and Reconstruction. I have significant materials, and have published several essays on this topic, but I am hoping to create something new and vibrant. If you have interest in this topic and would consider working with me, please send me an email with your interest: email@example.com
