The Seminar at Johns Hopkins 2 November

Presented a paper on Planters, the Fear of Slave Revolt and the Coming of the American Revolution to The Seminar at The Johns Hopkins University on 2 November, after spending a nice day at the Getty on 31 Octolber and seeing old friends Peter Mancall and Lisa Bitel. In Baltimore, I was hosted by John Marshall and had invigorating discussions with Francois Furstenburg, Toby Ditz and Gabe Paquette, The seminar was as rigorous as ever, with lots of discussions on how I framed my talk and concern about whether “fear” is the right term to use to describe planters’ reactions to slavery. Lots to think about!
