Tocqueville's Discovery of America
On one or two rare occasions in the past, the incorrect date was posted for an event. Such was the case for the Tocqueville talk. I am very sorry that that happened and would like to apologise to everyone, especially to David and Lisa who apparently went to Boston in anticipation of an event that never happened.
The event has been reposted with the correct date. If you plan on attending, please pre-register via the link in the event description.
Best to all,

In Tocqueville's Discovery of America, Leo Damrosch helps us rediscover Tocqueville and the nation the Frenchman chronicled so brilliantly and enduringly. Damrosch retraces Tocqueville's nine-month journey through the young nation in[masked], illuminating how his enduring ideas were born of imaginative interchange with America and Americans, and painting a vivid picture of Jacksonian America. Drawing on documents and letters that have never before appeared in English, as well as on a wide range of scholarship, Tocqueville's Discovery of America brings the man, his ideas, and his world to startling life.
Leo Damrosch is the Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature at Harvard University. He is the author of Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless Genius, a finalist for the 2005 National Book Award in Nonfiction and winner of the PEN New England/Winship Award.
