CSI Dixie: Death Investigation and the Civil War Era South

From Emma Rothberg ’15:

Come learn what the morgue can tell us about life and death in the nineteenth-century South. Based on a deep reading of the extantcoroners’ inquests for the state of South Carolina, University of Georgia Professor Stephen Berry provides glimpses into the sad intimacies inherent in the varied ways people go out of the world. “No society should be judged solely from its morgue,” Berry concludes,”but every society has to answer for its morgue.”

The website for the CSI Dixie project can be found here.

Sponsored by the History Department as part of the History Matters series.

Date: Wednesday, October 22
Time: 4:15-5:30 PM
