All alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join us for an evening with Kirt von Daacke (CLAS ‘97), Assistant Dean and Professor, Department of History, College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences. Professor von Daacke will share more about his new co-authored volume on slavery at the University of Virginia, hitting bookshelves in 2019.
Professor von Daacke’s research centers upon social constructions of race, community social hierarchies, and identity in eighteenth and nineteenth-century America. He also co-chairs both the UVA President’s Commission on Slavery and the University (PCSU) and the President’s Commission on the University in the Age of Segregation (PCUAS). The PCSU worked on research, acknowledgment, community engagement, and atonement for several years, culminating in the completion of a significant memorial to enslaved laborers (expected completion spring 2019).
We look forward to seeing you there for an engaging and informative evening!
