What's so Funny 'bout Commemoration? Past and Present Perspectives on Maine Statehood and the Bicentennial
Event Location: Rockport Opera House
Contact:    236-3642
rpl@rockport.lib.me.us
Professor Liam Riordan will give an illustrated presentation that explores the long statehood process in Maine that culminated in 1820 with formal separation from Massachusetts. That struggle engaged a range of challenging public issues that are still recognizable in contemporary Maine politics and culture. The talk focuses on four themes that bridge 200 years in telling ways:
  • the "two Maines" and sharp partisan conflict
  • the explosive place of slavery vis-a-vis the Maine-Missouri Compromise
  • Wabanaki sovereignty
  • the uncertain location of the international border to at least 1842.
Liam received his undergraduate B.A. at the University of California, Berkeley, and his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania. He has been a faculty member in the Department of History at the University of Maine in Orono since 1997.

Derek’s lifelong passion for birding has inspired his careers as a biologist, author, tour guide, and business owner. He has served as the Tools of the Trade department editor for Birding Magazine, and his writing has appeared in many other birding magazines. He and his wife, Jeannette, own and operate Freeport Wild Bird Supply, an independent bird-feeding and birding specialty shop that serves as a vehicle for promoting birding and bird conservation.
