Defining the American Empire

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Evenings with History presented by Charles Romney

Scholars struggle to locate the right analytical framework to understand the expansion of the United States. Is the American empire similar to the British empire in its features, or is the acquisition of territory by the United States distinct from European imperialism because of America’s republican ideology? This talk will explain traditional approaches to defining the American empire before exploring more recent interpretations that stress the unusual—and possibly unique—history of zones controlled by the United States.
