Talk: "Who We Are: The Vietnam War and the End of 'American Exceptionalism'"
March 27, 2014
4:30 pm-5:30 pm
Join us for the third installment of this year's History Institute. Professor Chris Appy will examine "American exceptionalism" as a core tenet of national identity, and how the Vietnam War posed fundamental challenges to the faith in America's actions as a force for good in the world. He will also explore the post-Vietnam efforts to revive "American exceptionalism."
A registration-only workshop for teachers will follow from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
