This is a Tri-Continental Partnership Webinar Series, organised by Ghent University, the University of the Western Cape and the University of Missouri

This third webinar will be organised by the University of Missouri, under the title: The Many Meanings of Thomas Jefferson .

Two University of Missouri faculty members will present a complex composite of Thomas Jefferson by talking about his contributions and his contradictions: his philosophical ideals, his ideas about the American people he wrote and thought about, and the impact of all of this on our contemporary perceptions of him. They will engage in a conversation that will present a full view of a complex man who had a significant impact on ideas of citizenship and racial identity in the United States.
