Professor featured at history symposium

Dr. Jennifer Lund Smith, associate professor of history at the University of North Georgia, will present her featured address “Emancipation & Education in ‘Them Thar Hills’: Schools & North Georgia After the Civil War,” at Reinhardt University's History Symposium in March.

Entitled “Intertwining Gold, Religion, and Education in North Georgia,” the symposium explores the lives of 19th-century Georgian gold-miners and the ways gold-mining, family relationships, and religion have shaped education in north Georgia. The symposium will be held March 22-23 on Reinhardt University’s campus.

Dr. Smith earned her doctorate from the University of Georgia for her research on the creation of educational institutions for blacks and whites in late 19th-century Georgia. She  recently served as president of the Georgia Association of Historians.
