Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2018. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

Since the 17th century, America has been fertile ground for attempts to engineer society according to utopian schemes. Randall Balmer considers how The Great Awakening at the turn of the 19th century unleashed a flurry of communitarian experiments, several of which had their roots in Vermont.

Led by: Randall Balmer, Professor in the Arts and Sciences, Dartmouth College
