Remapping Place, Space, and Politics: Locality and the Legend of American Isolationism

Wednesday 13 April 2016, 6.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Kristin Hoganson (Department of History, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)

York Centre for the Americas presents a public lecture by Professor Kristin Hoganson (Department of History, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Harold Vyvyan Harmsworth Visiting Professor at the Rothermore American Institute, Oxford).

The lecture reconsiders the legend of American isolationism by uncovering hidden histories of one of the seemingly most local of places — the U.S. heartland — in one of the seemingly most local of times — the long nineteenth century.

The event was made possible by the generous support of the Centre for Modern Studies
