The Deans Series with Dean, and recently appointed Provost, David Quigley:
Politics and Race in the Civil War and the Making of Modern New York
  The Deans Series with Dean David Quigley
  April 9, 2014 6:30 PM
  Union League Club, Lincoln Hall, 38 East 37th Street, New York, NY
The Civil War was the defining moment of nineteenth-century Americans, transforming our political culture forever.  Amid broader national currents of emancipation and modern warfare, New York City matured into the nation's first metropolis between 1850 and 1875.  This lecture will highlight the critical and contested links between city and nation in the era of the Civil War, highlighting local Democratic Party politics, the power and powerlessness of the Lincoln administration, and the evolving life of Manhattan's neighborhoods.

About Dean Quigley:
Recently appointed Provost and Dean of Faculties, and in his sixth year as the Dean of the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, David Quigley leads the university's largest academic unit, overseeing twenty-two departments and a faculty of nearly 500.  Since joining the Boston College History Department in 1998, David has taught undergraduate and graduate courses on the 19th-century United States with a focus on the rise of the American city and the era of the Civil War.  He has published books and articles on the political history of urban America.  Before becoming Dean, he served as founding Director of the Institute for the Liberal Arts.  During his tenure he helped direct the completion of the campus's newest academic building, Stokes Hall, housing the Humanities Department and the PULSE Program and, within the past year, has been one of the key university leaders responsible for the ongoing renewal of the university's Core Curriculum, the educational foundation for all undergraduate students studying at Boston College.

A beer and wine reception with hors d' oeuvres will follow the Dean's presentation.
