This project marked Lewis Henry Morgan’s (1818—1881) bicentennial by revisiting his various legacies, recovering and publicizing them while at the same time critically reevaluating them. We sponsored a set of related activities throughout the calendar year 2018, culminating in the autumn with three complementary public exhibits hosted by Rush Rhees Library, the Rochester Museum & Science Center, and the Rochester Public Library/Office of the City Historian.
Activities during the year included:
▸ Organizing a speaker and film series with venues on and off campus.
▸ Building this website and digital exhibit to document the project and furnish a durable resource for the project’s community partners as well as the University community.
