    In the Name of the Father: George Washington and American Identity
    January 17, 2019  |  5:30 PM7:30 PM

    Exhibition talk 

    Location: Homewood Museum Price: $10 public; free for members and Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, and students Purchase Tickets

    We hear a lot about the debunking of the Founding Fathers. But a slightly different question rarely gets asked: how were they “bunked” in the first place? In this talk, Dr. Francois Furstenberg, a professor of history at the Johns Hopkins University, will discuss how Americans of the early 19th century created and fought over various images and ideals of Washington as father of the nation.

    5:30 p.m. Wine and cheese reception

    6:30 p.m. Talk 

    François Furstenberg teaches in the history department at Johns Hopkins University, where his research focuses on the United States and the Atlantic World in the 18th and 19th centuries. His first book, In the Name of the Father: Washington's Legacy, Slavery, and the Making of a Nation shows how the image of George Washington promoted U.S. nationalism in the 19th century, and examines representations of Washington’s slaveholding in the period. His second book, When the United States Spoke French: Five Refugees Who Shaped a Nation, connects the U.S. to the French Atlantic World in the 18th-century Age of Revolutions, following a group of émigrés who fled the French Revolution and settled in Philadelphia. Other research interests focus on the early American West and on early American historiography, particularly on the historian Frederick Jackson Turner, as well as on print culture and early American cultural and intellectual history more broadly.

     


    This talk is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Many Faces of George Washington, on view at Homewood Museum from January 15 through March 21, 2019.

    Currently Hailed by critics for both its "sense of discovery and adventure," and its "considerable finesse," the Omer Quartet is a classical quartet on the rise. Last year was a break-out year for the group as it took First Prize in the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and began its tenure as the Doctoral Fellowship Strong Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Maryland. This season, the quartet is the Ernst Stiefel Quartet-in-Residence at New York's Caramoor Center for Music and Arts and will make its New York City and Washington, D.C. concert debuts.
