Dr. Daniel Vivian
Daniel Vivian specializes in the history of the United States after the Civil War. His current research concentrates on historical memory of slavery between the world wars. His book manuscript, “A New Plantation World: The Leisure Plantations of the Carolina Lowcountry, 1880-1940,” examines the relationship between historical memory, material change, and new patterns of social and cultural activity in the era when “the lowcountry” gained new prominence. A former historian with the National Register of Historic Places program in Washington, D.C., he also teaches courses in historic preservation and coordinates the department’s public history program.
