The discovery of the New World by Columbus in 1492 sent shockwaves through European empires. In particular, Latin America became a site for many Empires to reimagine their national identities through the market, race, and politics. This talk will focus on how three world powers made their mark on the New World: the Spanish, British, and French. Join us for a cross-cultural dialogue on the European presence in the New World with guest lecturer Christine Garnier.
