About James B. Stewart, Retired

Jim Stewart taught courses about the Western Hemisphere and the United States prior to the 20th century, emphasizing the topics of race, politics, law and social movements during his nearly thirty years of teaching. His books and articles address the abolitionist movement in the U.S. and the politics of the conflict over slavery and the struggles for racial justice. In 2002-03 he began a five-year, half-time appointment as James Wallace Professor of History, devoted largely to research, writing, editing and consulting for foundations. He will continue to teach courses occasionally.
