The Lyon G. Tyler Lecture Series is dedicated to the exploration of central themes and issues in history, ranging from earliest times and continuing into the nebulous zone where the present shades imperceptibly into the past. Previous series have invited eminent scholars to reflect on topics as diverse as the significance of the Civil War or the varieties of Native American experience in the eras of colonization and westward expansion. This year, the series examines the early modern Atlantic world and the Indian and Pacific Oceans. These lectures promise to be stimulating and provocative, and they will provide opportunity for the audience to listen to and interact with the speakers. All talks are open to the public, and the Lyon G. Tyler Department of History invites all interested members of the community to attend.

This lecture is made possible by a generous gift from the Harrison Tyler Family
