Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on migration to and settlement of Utah.

"Manifest Destiny Reconsidered, The Utah Experience" complicates the standing narrative of western expansion through study of Utah migration and settlement from 1847 to 1869. It also will investigate how the emerging nation tried to define what it meant to be American, with particular focus on immigration, religion, race, gender, and class and how such issues continue to shape the political and social debates of our nation. The workshops will be held at the THC and historic sites in the Salt Lake City area on June 16 to 21 and July 14 to 19, 2019.
