“United States” to Imperial America: Our Hidden Empire

The global expanse of US military bases is well-known, but its actual territorial empire is largely hidden. The true map of America is not taught in our schools.

Abby Martin interviews history Professor Daniel Immerwahr about his new book, ‘How To Hide An Empire,’ where he documents the story of our “Greater United States.”




Cinema Academica hosts film screenings during the academic year at the University of Ottawa on various social, political and economic issues in order to increase social consciousness and encourage activism in the community. All films are completely free of charge. All films are followed by discussion.

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.
