The Libraries and Quaker Studies at Haverford College is hosting a free Quaker history zoom panel on Wednesday, February 7th at 12:00pm EST.
The way that we understand the history of the Society of Friends today is very different from the way that we understood it one hundred–or even ten–years ago. In this session two distinguished scholars, Ben Pink Dandelion and Robynne Rogers Healey, will highlight some of the most important differences between “the new history of Quakerism” and older interpretations of Quaker history.
