The Birth of the United States of America – Challenging Conventional Wisdom (& Are We Listening)?

I took a seminar class from Prof Maier on the American Revolution (I think there were 8-10 of us in the class), and I often cite it as one of my favorite non-major classes. She pushed us in the material we read and consumed, but her eyes would light up each time we came together and had the chance to question/learn about the history of our country, especially while living in Boston. I’m sorry to learn of her passing, but felt her come to life again in this review of her research and writings.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) originally shared:

On our country’s birthday, we reflect on the contributions of the late Pauline Maier, a celebrated MIT historian who challenged conventional wisdom about the events that led to a new United States of America.

What Have We Learned from Pauline Maier?
