RECONSTRUCTION RECONSIDERED
J. Brent Morris and Hilary N. Green, series editors

Reconstruction Reconsidered, a new book series from the University of South Carolina Press, will explore new directions in the historiography of the Reconstruction era focusing on work that expands on our understanding of the period temporally, geographically, and thematically. The series will seek to publish a rich variety of perspectives and methodologies with the aim of better understanding this complicated and often misunderstood period of our nation’s history. The legacies of Reconstruction continue to shape so many of our contemporary debates about the nature of American citizenship and society, and this series will seek to open a window into both our past and our present.

The University of South Carolina Press is a fitting home for a series exploring this vital period of our nation’s history. Having played a central role in the Reconstruction project, South Carolina has helped shape the public memory of the era and preserve its history. Today the state is home to noteworthy landmarks, memorials, and institutes of higher learning that honor the era and support our ever-evolving conversations about race. Beaufort, South Carolina, is home to the Reconstruction Era National Park that was established in 2017, as well as the Institute for the Study of the Reconstruction Era at the University of South Carolina Beaufort. The Press and the series editors are excited to pursue collaborative partnerships with these and other entities to enhance the reach of engaged scholarship that can speak to a diverse audience.
