¡Vivan las Revoluciones!: Forming More Perfect Unions Across the Americas

A series of public programs celebrating the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States and its role in similar events in Latin American nations.

The Newberry Library seeks an NEH Humanities Discussions grant to support “¡Vivan las Revoluciones!: Forming More Perfect Unions Across the Americas.” In a series of twelve public programs, scholars, writers, artists, and community members will explore the complex histories and ongoing legacies of the Age of Revolutions across the Americas, inaugurated by the revolution of 1776. The confluence of the approaching 250th anniversary of the United States’ founding with the bicentennial commemorations in the early 2020s of independence for many Latin American nations provides a perfect opportunity to reflect on and reevaluate the vibrant, complex shared histories of the freedom struggles of the peoples of the Americas.
