February 21, 2017.  Labor, Landscapes, Preservation, and Destruction

February 23, 2017. No Class. This is a research and archive day. 

  • Start reading Ulrich, Laurel Thatcher, A House Full of Females: Plural Marriage and Women’s Rights in Early Mormonism, 1835-1870. This is a very long book, and I expect you to read all of it. Get started so that you are able to make your way through it.

February 24, 2017. You do not have a weekly assignment this week as you should be focusing on our collective annotated source list. Our collective primary and secondary source list is due to our Google Docs by 5 PM. You will be graded for your contribution to the collective document.
