"Phillis Wheatley Peters in Material Memory" with Barbara McCaskill, Sarah Ruffing Robbins, Ashley Cataldo, Elizabeth Watts Pope, and Honorée Fanonne Jeffers
2023 marks the 250th publication anniversary of Phillis Wheatley Peters’ Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral. Throughout this anniversary year, The Genius of Phillis Wheatley Peters: A Poet and Her Legacies, a project directed by the University of Georgia and Texas Christian University, honors the occasion as a milestone in both literary and historical terms generating countless cultural legacies.

During this virtual program, Barbara McCaskill and Sarah Ruffing Robbins, co-directors of the Phillis Wheatley Peters Project, will investigate the material memory of Wheatley Peters’ authorship by spotlighting items held in the collections of the American Antiquarian Society. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view collection material live while AAS curators Ashley Cataldo and Elizabeth Watts Pope share commentary on each item and examine Wheatley Peters in connection with social movements such as anti-slavery activism and American nation-building.
