Fellows talk - VA Humanities



Event Type(s): History, Lecture / Workshop
Organization: Virginia Humanities
Description: Join Virginia Humanities Fellow Nicole Maurantonio, associate professor of Rhetoric and Communication Studies and American Studies at the University of Richmond, for a talk on her research exploring memories of the Confederacy in 21st-century Virginia. She will focus specifically on the meanings of the taxidermied body of Little Sorrel, Confederate General Stonewall Jackson's warhorse, which is on display at Virginia Military Institute's museum in Lexington. Reading the revered Little Sorrel as a commemorative object, Maurantonio considers the horse and the practice of taxidermy in relation to contemporary debates surrounding the meanings of Confederate monuments.
