    Marc Ross, Professor Emeritus at Bryn Mawr College, will discuss his new book, Slavery in the North: Forgetting History and Recovering Memory, that explores the history of Northern enslavement and its new emergence in public history.  Tracing 250 years of Northern enslavement through research and visits to historical sites, Dr. Ross explores how the memory of men and women in bondage faded from Northern consciousness, how enslavement became known as strictly a Southern issue, and how the recent discovery of this history should be shared today.

    Marc Ross is a William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor Emeritus at Bryn Mawr College. He has a long-standing interest in conflict theory, conflict management and the politics of ethnicity and race. His newest book, Slavery in the North: Forgetting History and Recovering Memory, is the result of a project exploring why and how societies forget important events from their past as well as the conflict that came from the discovery of George Washington’s enslaved staff while he was living in Philadelphia and how this history should be remembered.
