In 2009, Gilder Lehrman Institute held a conference titled “Global Lincoln” at the University of Oxford. Papers were delivered by leading intellectuals and public figures examining the meanings which peoples from across the world drew from Lincoln. You can choose from sixteen lectures from leading historians with an approximate listening time of twenty five minutes. (My personal favorite was Adam Smith’s “Abraham Lincoln and the English Imagination.” You’ll delight in his wit!)

 The Global Lincoln by Richard Carwandine and Jay Sexton

This book compiles some of the papers presented in 2009 at the Global Lincoln conference held at the University of Oxford. Here are some of its reviews:

“Richard Carwardine and Jay Sexton have done a splendid job of assembling a broad and enriching collection of essays that explore Lincoln’s influence. Even for those with no background in the cottage industry of Lincoln studies, these sharp and insightful pieces are accessible. Scholars interested in new advances within the field will find the contents invaluable, especially a bibliography of Lincoln biographies published outside the United States .This volume is a welcome addition to the shelf of any reader interested in Abraham Lincoln (man and myth), America’s role within the world, or memory, media and politics on a global scale.” —American Historical Review

“This is a pathbreaking book.  In delineating the presence and stature of an international Lincoln, it shows us that as the world grows smaller, our national histories tend to coalesce, and that a broader historical horizon is taking shape.”-Douglas L. Wilson, Lincoln Studies Center
