Dr. David Carlson is a co-author of the Plain Folk in a Rich Man’s War: Class and Dissent in Confederate Georgia, which received recognition for its extensive research and writing. Also, he has authored several articles, including, “The Distemper of the Time: Conscription, the Courts, and Planter Privilege in Civil War South Georgia.” More recently, Carlson has devoted much of his time to pedagogical practices that are designed to promote student participation, reading comprehension, and communication skills, and he will lead a professional development workshop on Thursday, March 15, at 10:30 a.m. This last endeavor led to a partnership with Reacting to the Past, and Carlson is in the final stages of writing a role-playing game that is called The 13th Amendment: The Politics of Freedom in the American Civil War and centers on slavery, the Civil War, and emancipation. Carlson will address his game but also other ones created by Reacting to the Past authors, which will appeal to disciplines outside of history and the social sciences.
Please consider attending the faculty workshop, as well as his talk to faculty, student, staff, and the community at 4:30 p.m., on the same day.
