Removal and the Right to Remain in the United States

Humanities Lecture and Discussion with Samantha Seeley, Ph.D.
Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 5 pm, Henkelman Room, Albright Memorial Library, Scranton, PA 

Samantha Seeley, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Richmond. Her book, Race, Removal, and the Right to Remain: Migration and the Making of the Early United States, highlights early efforts at U.S. nation building and the use of migration to construct a white republic. Situating the struggles of Native and Black Americans into the larger story of the early U.S, Seeley argues for a more inclusive way to tell the story of forced removal and its implications on early U.S. statehood.
