Elizabeth Duquette was Graeff Chair of English at Gettysburg College and co-editor of J19: The Journal of 19th Century Americanists. Currently, she is a visiting scholar in the comparative literature program at Reed, as well as Portland State University's department of English. She is the incoming co-editor of The ALH Review. This talk is taken from Duquette's most recent book, American Tyrannies in the Long Age of Napoleon (Oxford 2023), which argues that tyranny is as American as democracy.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the departments of history, comparative literature, French, German, and Spanish.
