Join us for a virtual talk by Alison Efford, Associate Professor of History, Marquette University, and editor (with Viktorija Bilic), Radical Relationships: The Civil War–Era Correspondence of Mathilde Franziska Anneke.

Efford provides new perspectives on the transnational dimensions of the Civil War, gender and sexuality. Drawing on letters of radical German feminist and revolutionary Mathilde Anneke, she illuminates Anneke's politics and her intense romantic friendship with Yankee abolitionist Mary Booth.
