A fun evening is organized on 24 November at the Imbersago Media Library starting at 8.45pm. We’ll talk about the United States, starting with Indigenous history, the frontier, and the myth of the West.
Have you ever thought about how America was born, how it was formed, and what problems faced the Europeans who discovered and colonized it for the first time?
How was the United States formed, and through what human events?
Who were the first explorers? Were they Americans? From the 13 Puritan colonies to the present-day United States, what happened? How many states exactly? Who are the Native Americans and what happened to them in the past two centuries? What did American cinema teach us in the last century?
What are the basic philosophies that have accompanied the United States from the 1976 Constitution until today? Is it true that the United States is still the largest country in the world today?
From the “discovery” of Columbus to the Spanish-Portuguese domination, from the name “America” (what does Vespucci have to do with it?) to the continuing genocide committed by Europeans, from the Franco-English struggle for control of North America, to the Civil War and the creation of the region we now call the United States Between pioneers and adventurers, between explorers and soldiers.
The history of the continent to which we feel connected.
We will try to answer these and other questions on the evening of November 24 at Empressago.
