U.S. Occupations in Historical Perspective

Debates about whether the U.S. is or ever has been an imperial nation have intensified with the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. This panel's three student presenters shed historical light on U.S. imperialism via discussions of nineteenth-century Hawaii, the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Dominican Republic, and the Boston-based Anti-Imperialist League of 1898-1902.
