Due to the spread of covid-19, this class will now meet using video technology. Your virtual meeting will take place at the scheduled time and will cover the planned content. Additional dates may be scheduled to make up for missed meetings. You'll receive access information and instructions prior to your first online meeting. 

In this course we will study and discuss the national bestseller How to Hide an Empire: A History of the Greater United States by Daniel Immerwahr, Associate Professor of History at Northwestern University. The book provides a look into the United States’ overseas empire, which elides conventional conceptions of formal colonial subjects and territorial acquisitions. We will explore how, instead of relying purely on military bases and the armed forces, U.S. hegemony in the modern era depends on market dominance, control over multiple international institutions, and technological superiority to maintain a global empire. Three Thursdays: March 5, and April 2, and 9th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Class online.
