Before 1776 nearly all of the Americas had been claimed as colonial extensions of European kingdoms and empires; fifty years later most of these colonies had become independent nation states—a new world of nations and nationalism that would transform the modern era. An international conference will bring together scholars from Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, South America, and Europe to examine the important role of the Americas in shaping this new world.
Free and open to the public.
Guests are welcome to stay at the Holiday Inn, Vanderbilt; conference rate $95.
