Event Summary:

CSIS is thrilled to host a panel for the ‘Unfolding Our Shared Future: Challenge, Possibility and Potential in the 21st Century’ series – a travelling festival across the UK organized by the American Politics Group of the UK Political Studies Association with support from the US Embassy (London) and the British Association for American Studies and generously hosted by the University of Liverpool.

This event will focus on how history is interpreted and represented in the US and the UK, the Stories We Tell. Our panellists will discuss with the audience how “History, Mythologies, Memories and Monuments” as well as the national and international narratives on both sides of the Atlantic heavily influence how history is taught, represented, interpreted and also used to mould current political rhetoric and future ideas. More broadly, the project addresses issues facing the US and UK in domestic, trans-Atlantic and global contexts, including asking the essential question: what is the value of democracy?
