 间:329日(周三)下午400—5:30
 点:外语楼101会议室
 
讲座内容:Literature, both journalistic and belles lettristic, following the American Civil War created a mythos that lasted until the 1960s. This mythos was that the Southern Cause was State’s Rights rather than the abolition of the institution of race slavery. The reformulated US after the War led to a tragic coalition between the North and the South that resulted in practices of discrimination against African Americans. This lecture will provide examples from literature that demonstrate how this mythos was perpetrated and why its exposure was essential to American political progress.
