Lectures – 2022
From September 22-24, the Kinder Institute will partner with Iona College’s Institute for Thomas Paine Studies to host a conference on “The Contested Roots of Revolution in the Long 18th-Century,” which will bring scholars from around the globe—and from both halves of the 18th-century—together to re-examine imperial rule and how narratives of empire were wielded and debated during the colonial, revolutionary, and early republic eras. As part of proceedings, we’re gathering on September 23 at 4:30pm in Jesse 410 for a live stream of University of Chicago Thomas E. Donnelly Professor of British History Steven Pincus’ keynote address (for anyone who would like to live stream from home, the Zoom registration link is here). Also, a full conference program can be found here, which includes links to virtually attend many of the sessions, which range from panels, to book talks, to musical performances.
In addition, the University Libraries support all such scholarship by offering hundreds of books and electronic resources on the U.S. Constitution. Our librarians are happy to provide expert assistance with primary and secondary sources. Contact us to learn more!
