Center for the Study of New Orleans holds last event of academic year

March 19, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans Center for the Study of New Orleans will host its final event of the 2009-10 academic year, “Taken Against Their Will: Kidnappers, Detectives and Slaves,” a discussion led by historians Mike Ross of the University of Maryland, and Adam Rothman of Georgetown University, on Wednesday, March 24 at 7 p.m., in Nunemaker Auditorium on Loyola’s main campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Ross and Rothman will weave a tale of intrigue as they discuss two infamous 19th century Louisiana kidnapping cases that they have been researching.

Housed in the College of Social Sciences, the CSNO is a cross-disciplinary resource hub that promotes research and reflection on the history, politics, culture and environment of New Orleans. It was founded last fall and staged three events this year to standing-room-only crowds.

Earlier this month CSNO and Loyola announced the approval of a new academic minor in New Orleans studies.
