Title

Confederate Exceptionalism: Civil War Myth and Memory in the Twenty-First Century

Description

Book Cover - Confederate Exceptionalism: Civil War Myth and Memory in the Twenty-First CenturyHow do so-called neo-Confederates distance themselves from the actions and beliefs of white supremacists while clinging to the very symbols and narratives that tether the Confederacy to the history of racism and oppression in America? The answer, Nicole Maurantonio discovers, is bound up in the myth of Confederate exceptionalism—a myth whose components, proponents, and meaning she explores in her lecture.

Nicole Maurantonio is associate professor of rhetoric and communication studies and American studies at the University of Richmond. She is the author of Confederate Exceptionalism: Civil War Myth and Memory in the Twenty-First Century and coeditor (with David W. Park) of Communicating Memory & History.

This lecture will be streamed live at noon on September 10 on YouTube and Facebook
