10½ Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02108
Join Kathleen Hilliard in the Vershbow Special Collections Reading Room for a discussion of how she is using Athenæum collections to support her research for her current book project, «Bonds Burst Asunder: The Revolutionary Politics of Getting By in Civil War and Emancipation, 1860-1867,» which examines the transformation of southern political economy during the era of the American Civil War and African American emancipation, exploring how crisis and transition exposed weaknesses in slavery’s cruel paternalist bargain.

Kathleen Hilliard holds the 2017-2018 Suzanne and Caleb Loring Research Fellowship offered jointly by the Boston Athenæum and Massachusetts Historical Society. She is associate professor in the Department of History at Iowa State University. She received her BA from Wake Forest, a Museum Management Certificate from the University of South Carolina McKissick Museum, and her PhD from the University of South Carolina. She published «Masters, Slaves, and Exchange: Power's Purchase in the Old South» through Cambridge University Press in 2014.
