KU in Wichita
This year's presentation:
David Farber, Roy A. Roberts Distinguished Professor of History, University of Kansas
"Modern American Conservatism in the Age of President Trump"
The Hall Center's public outreach efforts are designed to demonstrate that it is precisely the humanities that are relevant and instructive to the fundamental issues we deal with as individuals and communities. As part of our commitment to this ideal, the Center sponsors KU in Wichita, which brings the scholarship of faculty at KU's Lawrence campus outside the borders of Lawrence.
Faculty have spoken on a wide range of topics, including the efficacy of Margaret Thatcher's leadership, the reception of poet John Keats in America, Mark Twain and his disapproval of the American invasion of the Philippines, and Abraham Lincoln's campaign trail.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the Lattner Family Foundation, and is co-sponsored by the KU Alumni Association and its Wichita Chapter.
