About the Event

Join Professor Dan Breen, Senior Lecturer in Legal Studies at Brandeis University, and a recipient of the Louis Brandeis Award for Excellence in Teaching, as he tells the story of how a local break-in became a national scandal, and how it profoundly changed the way Americans think about their political institutions. It has been called “The Scandal that Never Goes Away” — and with good reason. Learn how the break-in at the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate Hotel happened and the events that followed, culminating in President Nixon’s resignation in August of 1974. Daniel Breen’s primary academic interests lay in the law and politics of the Early Republic, he also holds a Ph.D. in American History and enjoys lecturing on a wide variety of subjects. Professor Breen is currently working on an article about the secession movement in New England during the Jefferson and Madison administrations. 

Sponsored by a generous grant from The Cummings Foundation.
