When Early German Settlers met Native Americans

Please join us for Prof. Katie Faull’s lecture, Stories of the Susquehanna, on Monday, March 28, 2016, 3:30-4:30pm, in Bullock Science Center/Teasley Lecture Hall (open to the public).

Prof. Faull has received several large NEH grants to translate and digitize documents from the Moravian archives in Bethlehem, PA. The Moravian community was founded by 18th-century German-speaking immigrants who in turn descended from Protestant communities in today’s Czech Republic.

The Stories of the Susquehanna project examines how these early settlers interacted with Native American communities, with the environment in the upper branches of the Susquehanna river, and forms a showcase project for digital undergraduate research. The lecture is open to the public, please direct any questions to ggraml@agnesscott.edu.
