One-Day Seminar: Nationalism and Imperialism in the Gilded Age hosted by Georgia Council for the Social Studies (Athens, GA)

October 22 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Great fortunes were made in the late 19th Century and with this growth of industrialism came a desire to expand markets. How did nationalism inform the pro-imperialist arguments of Theodore Roosevelt? Were these arguments consistent with American principles? What were the arguments against imperialism and protectionism? This seminar will analyze these questions and consider the policies of Theodore Roosevelt.

Lunch will be provided at this free program, as well as a certificate for continuing education. All registrants will receive a copy of the reader, on paper, in advance of the program; and digital copies will be available here after early September 2020. Click here to register.
