The Ivy Bookshop, Bird in Hand, and the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute at Johns Hopkins University present the latest installment of Humanities in the Village, featuring Alexander Heffner! This event has been shifted to a virtual format, and you can register for the Zoom webinar here.
In an age dominated by disinformation, what are the facts about the history of the United States? In A Documentary History of the United States, Alexander Heffner considers the contemporary age of pandemic and cruel feelings...deploying primary sources to tell the unvarnished history of the United States, including key documents, speeches, letters, tweets and Supreme Court decisions from the Declaration of Independence to Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump. What do we learn from examining these primary sources? Which documents are critical to understanding the past, present, and future of American democracy?
Alexander is host of The Open Mind on PBS. He has covered American culture, politics, and civic life since the 2008 presidential campaign. He is coauthor of best-selling A Documentary History of the United States (Penguin, 2022), and recipient of University of Denver’s Anvil of Freedom Award, Franklin Pierce University’s Fitzwater Medallion for Leadership in Public Communication, and Yale University’s Poynter Fellowship in Journalism.
