TIFTON – Fascinating topics abound in a new lecture series opening Sept. 25 at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Dr. James Galt-Brown said the ABAC History Lecture Series touches on how the events and decisions of the past resonate in every aspect of our lives.
“This series explores issues both past and present and how those issues affect us each day,” Galt-Brown, a professor of history in the School of Arts and Sciences, said.
Dr. Jess Usher, an assistant professor of history, kicks off the series on Sept. 25 when he speaks on “An Examination of American Immigration History” at 7 p.m. in Howard Auditorium. The public is invited to attend at no charge.
“The history of immigration in America and what constitutes illegal actions are worthy of examination,” Usher said. “As is often the case, a knowledge of history might help to overcome ignorance.”
Three other lectures in the series include Galt-Brown speaking on “Lasting Impacts: 100 Years After World War I” on Nov. 19, Dr. Hans Schmeisser on “Henry Clay and the Making of America” on Feb. 28, 2019, and Dr. Wendy Harrison on “The Georgia Chautauqua in Albany” on March 12, 2019. All lectures begin at 7 p.m. in Howard Auditorium.
