WordPower: Britain and the American Constitution
Tuesday 8 September, 18.30-20.00, British Library Terrace Restaurant, £8 / £6 / £5 Book via the BL Box Office

The United States was created by a war against Britain and is separated from it by more than the Atlantic. Most specifically, America’s constitution is often represented as critically different from Britain’s own  “unwritten” constitution.  For the 2015 Eccles Centre Fulbright Commission Lecture, Linda Colley examines the validity of such views, and British reactions over time to written constitutions. Find out more… Organised in collaboration with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
