Addressing Gettysburg Podcast


May 17, 2021

Scott Hancock, currently associate professor of History and Africana Studies at Gettysburg College, came to Gettysburg College in 2001. His scholarly interests focus on the African American experience from the mid-seventeenth century to just before the Civil War. His work considers African Americans’ engagement with the law, and incorporates other disciplinary perspectives such as law & society and geography. He is particularly interested in how black interaction with the law in a variety of ways, from small disputes in lower courts to escaping via the underground railroad, shaped constitutional law, legal ideologies, black identity and U.S. society. Some of his work has appeared in the anthologies Paths to Freedom, We Shall Independent Be, and Slavery, Resistance, Freedom, and more recently in the journal Civil War History.
 
Scott joined us on this, his first of hopefully more, appearance on the show. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed talking to Scott.
