Event Description:
Fayetteville, Ark. – Andrew Zimmerman, Professor of History at George Washington University, will present "The American Civil War: A Global History on the Mississippi River" as the 2017-2018 Timothy Donovan Lecturer at 6:00 p.m. Monday, March 6, in Giffels Auditorium in Old Main.

Although the Civil War is usually understood as a uniquely American conflict, Professor Zimmerman is at the forefront of scholarly efforts to recast the war within a global context. He has previously published two monographs Alabama in Africa: Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South (Princeton University Press, 2010) and Anthropology and Antihumanism in Imperial Germany (University of Chicago Press, 2001) as well as an edited edition of Karl Marx and Frederich Engels’ The Civil War in the United States (International Publishers, 2016).
The Donovan Lecture Series is named in honor of Timothy Donovan, former professor and chair of the department of history at the University of Arkansas, and has brought leading historians to campus. This event is co-sponsored by the department of history in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. Professor Zimmerman’s appears at the University of Arkansas as part of the Organization of American Historians’ Distinguished Lecture Series.
