Led by Nina Dubin, University of Illinois at Chicago and Analú López, Newberry Library

 

This workshop will focus on the Mississippi Bubble, a global financial disaster in 1720. Participants will familiarize themselves with the sources, characters, and stories wrapped up in this fairly obscure event (including rogue colonial speculators, satirical editorial printmakers, and sophisticated Indigenous economic actors) and develop ideas for teaching them to different student communities. In so doing, the workshop will help graduate students and faculty from all fields of premodern studies hone pedagogical techniques that can be broadly applied to a wide range of topics.
