McCarthy 2Seventy years ago this February, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin launched his destructive anticommunist rampage. Addressing the Women’s Republican Club in Wheeling, WVA, McCarthy charged that 205—or was it 57?—known communists were working for the U.S. State Department, enjoying the protection of an indifferent or even a disloyal Truman administration. McCarthy went on to even wilder charges, intensifying an anticommunist Red Scare that had begun shortly after the end of World War II. For a few years in…

History Scholar-Activism: Living Our Work

February 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
University of California Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA 93106 United States

Join us as we talk about how we—as historians and historians in training—approach our work as “scholar-activists” within the context of the academy. While not all of us identify as “scholar-activists,” we work with social justice and equity in mind. Themes Methodology: What does that look like? How do we describe it and/or think about it? Historiography: What is it? How is it relevant to my work? And, where do I fit in? Theory: What does theory look like in…

Sara Beam, “Missing Babies and Tacit Tolerance of Infanticide in Early Modern Europe”

February 28 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
HSSB 4080, 4080 Humanities and Social Sciences Building, UC Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA 93106 United States

Aggressive criminal prosecution of unwed mothers who killed their newborns in early modern Europe (1550-1750) has led historians to assume that Europe was less tolerant of illegitimacy and infanticide than other pre-modern societies, including China and Japan.

These findings suggest that Europeans took a more practical approach to managing fertility than we had thought.…
