Matthew Dziennik
Earhart Fellow

"With a Liberal Hand: Intra-continental Refugees and Foundations of Revolutionary Sovereignty, 1774-1786"

Noon - 1:00 p.m.
Thursday, November 8, 2012
Great Hall, Clements Library

Matthew Dziennik will discuss his work on the treatment of refugee populations by state and national governments during the Revolutionary War.  Challenging the idea that the Loyalists constituted the only significant refugee population of this period, he suggests that the treatment of refugees offers a critical insight into how the United Sates secured its place as a sovereign nation.
