Hines Prize Lecture: “Regulating Moral Contagion: Black Atlantic Sailors, Citizenship, and Diplomacy in Antebellum America” with Michael Schoeppner, PhD

March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the  College of Charleston’s Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World (CLAW) program’s biennial Hines Prize winner Michael Schoeppner for a lecture based on his award winning manuscript entitled Regulating Moral Contagion: Black Atlantic Sailors, Citizenship, and Diplomacy in Antebellum America. Schoeppner’s work is the first to examine the role of the Negro Seaman Acts in the Atlantic World. It highlights the pivotal role that African-Americans, especially maritime workers, played in the development of federal citizenship rights.

The prize, endowed by former College of Charleston Dean Samuel Hines, is awarded every other year for the best first manuscript on a topic relating to the Carolina Lowcountry and/or Atlantic World.
