Prof Jay Gitlin, Associate Director, Yale University, Professor Jay Gitlin is Associate Director of the Howard R. Lamar Center for the Study of Frontiers and Borders at Yale University. He has taught history at Yale for over twenty-five years, including courses on the American West, Québec and Canada. His book, The Bourgeois Frontier: French Towns, French Traders, and American Expansion received the 2010 Alf Andrew Heggoy Prize for the best book in French colonial history.
In this inaugural Yale-UCL Americas Lecture Professor Jay Gitlin, a member of the History Department at Yale University, challenges traditional notions of American Manifest Destiny by examining what he calls the “transcolonial bourgeois frontier” in cities like St Louis, Montreal and New Orleans and the interrelationship of French traders, American expansion and the porous borders of the Spanish and British Empires between 1763 and 1847.
