AmRev Seminar: Everyday Life in the Revolutionary Era – Seminar 1

March 01, 2022
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

When you think of the Revolutionary War, you might picture soldiers marching into battle. But for most people in the 1770s, everyday life in this extraordinary time was about less dramatic moments. For historians, investigating how people worked, socialized, and changed their minds about the world at large can be one of the most fascinating avenues of new research. In this interactive seminar, we’ll use readings, virtual talks and tours, and class discussion to examine what people ate, believed, wore, and did for fun.

This five-class seminar led by Dr. Tyler Putman, Senior Manager of Gallery Interpretation, will occur on Tuesday evenings in March (1, 8 15, 22, and 29) from 7-8:30 p.m. Participants will need access to Zoom meeting, an internet connection, microphone, and webcam, and will receive complementary readings and resources. Sessions will be recorded for the benefit of participants who miss a session due to a conflict. With questions, please contact Tyler Putman at tputman@amrevmuseum.org.
