Speaker(s): Professor Felipe Fernández-Armesto
Chair: Professor Peter Trubowitz

Recorded on 30 April 2014 at New Theatre, East Building

In this talk Felipe Fernández-Armesto aims to traduce the Anglo myth that has dominated US historiography, by suggesting that regional approaches to US history have disclosed facts previously under-acknowledged: the country - in parts, especially - has a past that closely resembles that of most Latin American republics, and a future increasingly convergent with other parts of the Americas.

Felipe Fernández-Armesto is the William P Reynolds Professor of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame and the author, most recently, of Our America.
