A leading expert on the lives and times of the Shakers, one of America's most remarkable communitarian religious movements, founded in England in the eighteenth century, Hartford-based historian Stephen Miller offers a brief history of the Shakers and examines the products of their lands (seeds, herbs, medicines) and their hands (furniture, textiles, and other products), particularly here in New England. Included in the cost of the course is Miller's recent book From Shaker Lands and Shaker Hands, which will form the basis for the course. There will be three sessions.
