FALL 2007 UNIVERSITY LECTURE SERIES: Creating a Campus-Wide Conversation

Wed, September 19, 2007 | The Frank Erwin Center. 90-minute event.

6:00 PM

David Oshinsky's book, Polio: An American Story, won the 2006 Pulitzer Award. In this book, Oshinsky details the national campaign to wipe out the most feared childhood disease of the 1950s--polio. He will speak on his current project, the history of capital punishment in the US. The ULS is designed to give students an opportunity to hear leading members of our faculty--scholars, scientists and public figures who are well known nationally and internationally. A diverse faculty panel will discuss each lecture immediately afterward, for the benefit of the students, and the students will have an opportunity to discuss the issues among themselves.
