Cambridge History of America & the World Book Launch


For our final event of the Fall 2021 semester, please join us for the launch of the four-volume Cambridge History of America and the World, a project that can trace part of its origins to a Kinder Institute conference back in 2018. Bringing together more than 125 historians from all corners of the globe, as well as ten editors—including our own Jay Sexton, who edited the series’ second, 19th-century-focused volume—Cambridge History of America and the World is the first attempt in more than a generation to synthesize answers to the following two questions: how has the world shaped America? How has America shaped the world? To start working through these questions in anticipation of the series’ publication, we will have a December 3 colloquium in Jesse Hall 410, with special Zoom guests beamed in to discuss the project with Prof. Sexton, including his partner in crime and co-editor for Volume 2, Kristin Hoganson (University of Illinois); the series’ general editor, Mark Bradley (University of Chicago); and several of the 32 contributors to Vol. 2. Free and open to the public, the events will kick off at 3:30, and anyone interested in attending virtually can do so using the Zoom info below.
