Introduction to MV History Lecture Series: Week 2 (1720s-1820s)

Introduction to MV History Lecture Series: Week 2

Join us on Thursdays in September and October for our Introduction to Martha’s Vineyard History Lecture Series. If you’ve ever wanted to dig deep into the story of this Island with the help of an expert guide, this six-week lecture series, taught by MVM Research Librarian Bow Van Riper, is the perfect place to begin.

Week 2 will focus on the 1720s-1820s. As social, cultural, political, and religious changes rocked the Island, residents of Wampanoag,  English, and African heritage confronted the question: “Who am I?” Meanwhile, newly arrived immigrants from off-Island sought to make a place for themselves in an unfamiliar world.

Preregistration encouraged.

MVM Members: $20 per class or $100 for all six-weeks; Non-Members: $25 per class or $125 for all six-weeks.

Please note: the final class session will occur on October 26, not October 19.
