GCC History Club hosts: Steven Hahn on "A Nation Without Borders"

STAFF REPORTS

BATAVIA, N.Y. -- Genesee Community College's History Club invites everyone to Historical Horizons Lecture Series taking place on the Batavia campus on the first Wednesday of every month this fall.

On Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at 7 p.m. Pulitzer Prize winning professor of history from New York University, Steven Hahn will discuss his latest book A Nation Without Borders. This is an important reinterpretation of 19th Century America-a kind of coming-of-age story especially significant for its contribution to the scholarship on the Civil War period.

"A massive and masterly account of America's political and economic transformation between 1830 and 1910 . . . Hahn describes his book as telling 'a familiar story in an unfamiliar way.' It is much more than that. Attempting a synthesis of a century's worth of American history is a daunting task. Writing one as provocative and learned . . . as this one is a triumph, nothing less." - David Oshinsky, The Washington Post

The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in room T102 of the Conable Technology Building, is free and open to the public.
