Historian Amanda Bosworth spent much of the sesquicentennial year of Seward’s Folly (2017) researching in Alaska and Russia. Traveling throughout Russia and the former Russian America, she experienced firsthand the disparate ways the legacy of Seward’s Alaska purchase is understood in each place. Bosworth will trace this fraught history and discuss the way it was remembered on both sides of the Pacific.
