Uncle Tom's Cabin in the Web of Culture: A Multi-disciplinary Conference

A conference exploring the meaning and significance of Uncle Tom's Cabin for American culture, with presentations that will ultimately be posted on the project director's website devoted to Uncle Tom's Cabin and American culture. (12 months)

The Uncle Tom's Cabin and American Culture project (University of Virginia) and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center request funding for a June 2007 conference in Hartford CT. 12 nationally-known scholars from 11 universities and 7 different academic disciplines will explore the meaning of Stowe's famous novel as a cultural phenomenon. Scholars will deliver newly-prepared papers focused on issues like race, slavery, religion and popular entertainment in a format designed to allow interactions among scholars and with the audience of students and teachers. Revised presentations will be published in the "Uncle Tom's Cabin & American Culture" online archive, an NEH-sponsored We the People project visited by 1500 visitors a day.
