The story of the American flag is the story of a nation in search of itself; this talk explores that colorful history as a lens to examine the political uses of patriotism. Author of the newly published Capture the Flag: A Political History of American Patriotism, Dr. Woden Teachout examines how the flag has been captured and claimed by a wide range of our fellow citizens to promote their versions of the American dream, and we will use these stories as a means to explore the changing notions of what it means to be a patriot.
