Nancy Isenberg: "Aaron Burr and Bad History"

Get the inside story on Aaron Burr — the Fallen Founder. Join us for a student/faculty seminar hosted by the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership with Nancy Isenberg, T. Harvey Williams Professor of History, Lousiana State University.  

Isenberg is the author of "Fallen Founder: The Life of Aaron Burr," which was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize in Biography and won the Oklahoma Book Award for best book in nonfiction. She is the coauthor, with Andrew Burstein, of "Madison and Jefferson," and the author of "White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America." Isenberg is the winner of the 2016 Walter & Lillian Lowenfels Criticism Award for the Before Columbus Foundation and was No. 4 on the 2016 Politico 50 list. 

Isenberg's seminar will precede her appearance in an event with Professor Peter McNamara at 7 p.m. at ASU Gammage, as they explore the explosive relationship between Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and the wider drama of America's founding. Free tickets to that event are still available.

Cookies and refreshments will be served.
