Patriarchy and Masculinity in Antebellum America: Andrew Jackson and His Male Wards

As I’ve done for papers at the 2011 SHEAR and 2011 SHA conferences, I am posting ahead of time the paper I will be giving in Chicago at the American Historical Association annual meeting.

This paper, which examines patriarchy and masculinity in Jackson’s advice to his male wards, is in many ways a continuation of the paper I gave at SHEAR. I hope to combine the two into an article at some point soon.

My colleague, Natalie Inman, organized the panel. Her former advisor, Lorri Glover, is chairing and commenting. Kenneth Wheeler and G. Richard Wright are also presenting on the panel.
