2016-17 Fellowship Brown-Bag Series: Towards Transhistoricism: Interpreting Public Universal Friend and Their Followers
Thursday, March 23, 12:00-1:00 pm, Walker Hall 200

2016-2017 Rothman Faculty Summer Fellow Dr. Schorb will give a talk on Publick Universal Friend, the evangelical prophet and itinerant preacher born Jemima Wilkinson in 1752, who, following a near-death fever in 1776, asserted they were “neither male nor female,” and amassed a devoted following in the decades after the American Revolution, ultimately settling in New York and founding the town of New Jerusalem.
This event is part of the 2016-17 Fellowship Brown-Bag Series, which features informal talks by the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s Rothman Faculty Summer Fellows, Tedder Doctoral Fellows, and Rothman Doctoral Fellows. Fellows will speak for 20–30 minutes in length about their funded work, leaving ample time for questions and discussion.
