Mark Fiege reframes our history based on the premise that nothing can be considered apart from the natural circumstances in which it occurred. Revisiting historical icons—including our revolutionary nation rising from its environment to reconcile the diversity of its people with the claim that nature is the source of liberty, and Abraham Lincoln steering the Union guided by his vision of nature’s capacity for improvement—the author of The Republic of Nature highlights the nature of our country, making connections that shed new light on old stories. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
