THE HISTORY DEPARTMENT PRESENTS: In the Archive with History Professor Courtney Fullilove


Professor Fullilove is completing a book about global seeds and local knowledge in 19th-century American agricultural development. She believes there’s no such thing as a trivial source and will discuss mining material traditionally neglected by historians — decaying seeds, discarded records, and dead letters — for unlikely insights into the nature of state power.
