Professor Jeremy Adelman, Princeton University
"The Need for Strangers: A Story of Love and Loathing."
Date and Time: April 8, 4:30pm | Location: Wolf Room, McNeil Center for Early American Studies
We are pleased to announce that this year's Kaplan speaker will be Jeremy Adelman, the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Princeton University. The lecture and discussion will take place on April 8 at 4:30 pm in the Wolf Room at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies.
Professor Adelman has written extensively on nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin American history, as well as on questions of sovereignty, empire, and the making of nation-states in South America. He will give a talk titled, "The Need for Strangers: A Story of Love and Loathing." His presentation will be based on a forthcoming book tentatively titled “Global Integration and the Need for Strangers," a study of how writers and artists, diplomats and ecologists, have been wrestling with the meaning of global inter-dependence and attitudes to strangers from the 1850s to the present.
