With Patrick Murray, PhD—the John C. Kenefick Faculty Chair in the Humanities and a professor of philosophy—the Kingfisher Institute co-sponsored a talk from Daniel Immerwahr, PhD, associate professor of history at Northwestern University, on March 31, 2022. Immerwahr expanded on his book, How to Hide an Empire: A History of the Greater United States, about the enduring realities of U.S. colonialism.
“Four cohorts of undergraduate students in Creighton’s Global Scholars Program had the privilege of hosting the author for dinner and conversation, during which the group conversed on an assortment of topics ranging from Dr. Immerwahr’s career path to his stance on TikTok and other pop culture phenomena. His quick wit continued in his lecture that evening, where he captivated the audience with a provocative account of U.S. history as it relates to U.S. territories, especially the oft-forgotten and violent U.S. presence in the Philippines. Global Scholars students reported that it was one of the most interesting and eye-opening speaking events they had heard at Creighton.”
