The Fourth of July has become synonymous with independence day in America. But it is more than just about barbeques, parades, and fireworks. As the country celebrates the 244th anniversary of its founding, we invite you to join Professor William Borges from the Department of American and Canadian Education in a stimulating talk on America’s founding. Professor Borges brings with him a wealth of knowledge of American history and politics where he will reflect on the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the revolutionary idea of “rule of the people,” and how the American democratic experiment continues to reverberate across the globe even as it grapples with the unresolved “original sin” of slavery today.
