Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience aims to complicate the standing narrative of western expansion through intensive study
of Utah’s migration and settlement from 1847-1869. In doing so, it also will investigate
how the emerging nation tried to define what it mean to be “American,” with particular
focus on immigration, religion, race, gender, and class and an interest in addressing how such issues continue to
shape our nation’s political and social debates. The workshops will be held at the
Tanner Humanities Center and at historic sites and landmarks in
the Salt Lake City area on June 18-23 (national) and July 9-14, 2017 (commuter).
