Description

Please join the department of history in celebrating the publication of Professor Tim Hawkins’ new book, "Luí­s de Oní­s and the Shadow War against Napoleon in Spanish America, 1808-1812" (University of Alabama, 2019), exploring how colonial officials, by conflating suspected French intrigue with growing calls for domestic political reform, ultimately and ironically undermined Spain’s empire in the Americas. Mark Burkholder (Emeritus Professor of History, University of Missouri-St. Louis) will introduce the author, who will then give a short presentation and answer questions from the audience. A reception with drinks and refreshments will follow. All are welcome.
