Time:2:45-4 p.m.
Description:British Studies presents "A New Grand-Transatlantic-Drama: Britain and the Anglo-American War of 1812," a seminar led by Troy Bickham, associate professor of history, Texas A&M University.

Although overshadowed by the Napoleonic Wars, the War of 1812 between the Britain and the new United States merits more attention. By placing the conflict in a global context, this seminar session will reveal how Britain, just as much as the United States, was a protagonist in the conflict. While the war was America's bid for post-colonial sovereignty, it was also Britain's attempt to block it and reassert control over North America.

Bickham specializes in the history of Britain and its empire in the long eighteenth century.
