June 22–28

Join us during our Week One conversation at Chautauqua Institution as we will explore "Moments the Changed the World." In this week, we ask five historians to choose a little-known moment when the ground shifted beneath humanity's feet. 

  • How did these moments impact the world of today?
  • We look at unsung heros — and villains — as well as unsung moments that altered the course of history.
  • We invite speakers from around the world to explore this topic deeper.
