Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two schoolteachers on migration to and settlement of Utah.

Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience aims to complicate the standing narrative of western expansion through intensive study of the migration to and settlement in Utah from 1847-1869. In doing so, it also will investigate how the emerging nation tried to define what it mean to be American, with particular focus on immigration, religion, race, gender, and class and an interest in addressing how such issues continue to shape the political and social debates of our nation. The workshops will be held at the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah and at historic sites in the Salt Lake City area on June 18-23 and July 9-14, 2017.
