CSSW-Sponsored Symposium now a Book

Texan Identities

In January 2015 the center hosted a symposium that brought back to campus MA alumni from the Department of History, all of whom work on Texas history. That gathering led to a collection of essays, Texan Identities: Moving beyond Myth, Memory, and Fallacy in Texas History, published by the University of North Texas Press with the generous support Texas State University. This is the second collaboration of this type, following the 2014 symposium “Lone Star Unionism and Dissent” that led to the University of Oklahoma Press collection, Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance: Other Sides of Civil War Texas.
