Moments That Changed the World

How did we get to now? The answers may surprise you. In this week, Chautauqua asks five historians to each choose a little-known moment when the ground shifted beneath humanity’s feet, and examine how those moments impacted the world of today.

• We look at unsung heroes — and villains — as well as unsung moments that altered the course of history.

• History often offers surprises, revealing how and why certain stories are obscured, erased or lesser-known.

• How can those surprises be instructive? How can our newfound knowledge of these moments be useful in our time?

See all of the confirmed events for Week One at Chautauqua!
