A Typical Latin American Country: the United States

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

UCL-Institute of the Americas is honored to host Professor Felipe Fernandez-Armesto to deliver this lecture on the occasion of the launch of his latest book Our America: A Hispanic History of the United States (W.W.Norton and Company, London 2014).

The lecturer aims to traduce the Anglo myth that has dominated U.S. historiography, by suggesting that regional approaches to U.S. history have disclosed facts previously under-acknowledged: the country - in parts, especially -has a past that closely resembles that of most Latin American republics, and a future increasingly convergent with other parts of the Americas.

This session will be chaired by Prof Iwan Morgan, Professor of US Studies at UCL-Institute of the Americas and Commonwealth Fund Professor of American Studies at UCL-History.
