Liz Regosin is a historian. Liz's current research interest has been African Americans in the age of emancipation. Much of her research has revolved around the examination of African-American Civil war pension records, and thus even though her attention has been on issues beyond the war itself, her work is grounded in an understanding of the place of African Americans in the context of the Civil War.
Liz and Jennifer (Jenny) Hansen, a philosopher, have been teaching courses together at St. Lawrence University in recent years. Their courses focus on issues of social justice and race and ethnic relations in the US (and, of course, the relationship between the two). These courses include “Making a Difference: Active Citizenship in a Thriving Democracy,” “Behind Bars in the United States,” and “Race, Ethnicity, and Baseball.” Liz and Jenny are deeply passionate about issues of social justice.
