Acclaimed historian Richard Beeman, winner of the 2010 George Washington Book Prize, will offer a special series of public talks at the College this fall. The series, “Inventing a Nation,” will provide attendees a crash course in the dramatic highs and lows of America’s first twenty-five years. Americans today often disagree--and disagree vehemently--on how the United States Constitution should be interpreted. Professor Beeman will explore how the Founders themselves understood the meaning of many of the clauses which they drafted and how they might have wished their Constitution to be interpreted by subsequent generations. Beeman has been a member of the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania for 43 years and is one of the nation’s leading historians of America’s revolutionary and early national experience. He has recently joined the Washington College community as a Senior Fellow of the Starr Center and the Institute for Religion, Politics, and Culture. www.starrcenter.washcoll.edu
