“Composite Nation:” Can America Find a Unifying Historical Narrative Rooted in Progress?
November 17, 2018
9:10 am - 10:25 am
Dudley H. Davis Center
Americans’ sense of hope or faith that tomorrow will be better than today has always depended upon not only when one lives, but also who one is. David Blight will consider the ebb and flow of optimism throughout American history in light of this fact, and what this history means for the present and for the future.
Led by: David W. Blight, Professor of American History, Yale University
