Clements Library 2019 Peckham Fellow Sarah Swedberg joins us to discuss her new book "Liberty and Insanity in the Age of the American Revolution," published in December 2020 by Rowman & Littlefield. Dr. Swedberg’s research focuses on the anxiety of the first generation of American citizens as they created a republican form of government. Her recent research focuses on “lunatics” (the term used at the time), and weaves together medical and political histories.
