Maine’s Bicentennial


200 years of Maine statehood

We see Maine’s Bicentennial year – 2020 – as an opportunity to take stock, to ask ourselves, after 200 years of statehood, who are we? where are we? how did we get here? and where might we be going?

We plan to take four broad, interrelated themes as points of entry to our exploration of Maine after 200 years of statehood:

  • Many Maines
  • Migration & Borders
  • Race & Ethnicity
  • Wabanaki Voices
