Colley in Washington History Seminar

The Washington History Seminar will convene virtually on Monday, November 1 at 4:00 pm ET for Linda Colley, Princeton University, to discuss “the aims and methods involved in her recent book The Gun, the Ship, and the Pen: Warfare, Constitutions and the Making of the Modern World (2021), and comment[] in retrospect on some of its arguments about the connections after 1750 between patterns of conflict, the exponential spread of written constitutions across continents, and the progress (and limits) of rights.”  Daniel Hulsebosch, New York University, and Dane Kennedy, George Washington University, will comment.  Register here.
