Sex and the Founding Fathers: The American Quest for a Relatable Past

Thursday, October 15, 2015 -
19:00 to 20:30

Dr. Thomas A. Foster will examine the manner in which Americans have interpreted the private lives of the founders, including their most intimate moments with the women who played the most important roles in their lives, from the era of the Revolution to the present.  In doing so, he argues that Americans have looked to the founders as role models not only for their public deeds but also for how they handled their most private moments.

Some actually succeeded them as dictators. A few were critics, even defectors.
