The conference planned in honor of Mary Beth Norton’s career now has a program posted online, as well as new information about accomodations for the big weekend, September 28 and 29, 2012.
This could be your chance to meet Tenured Radical, who’s chairing the first panel on Friday morning the 28th! Alas, I will not be able to be there myself, much as I had hoped.
One last comment: did we really need to include “liberty’s sons” in the conference title? I know Norton has had some distinguished men students, but couldn’t we for one weekend have assumed that the female was the universal default? Few traditional historians of the American Revolution pause to reflect on the exclusivity of the “Sons of Liberty,” so why do should feminists be so scrupulous?
