History Homecoming Weekend

March 31 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Black Adders alumni, The History Undergraduate Society (THUGS) and the U of L Department of History have planned a full weekend of activities, including a curling bonspiel, history research lightning rounds and the second annual Driedger Lecture. Titled Humanitarian Imagery and the Irresistible Appeal of ‘the Child,’ the lecture features guest speaker Dr. Heide Fehrenbach from Northern Illinois University. She will discuss the use of heart-rending images of needy or suffering children to stimulate empathy and political action or open wallets. While depictions of children in need may appear static and predictable, they have been deployed for an array of political agendas for more than a century.

Fehrenbach’s talk is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. in room L1060 in the Library.
