Daniel Walker Howe, UCLA's (and Oxford's) Pulitzer-Prize-winning historian, will lecture at 3:30 tomorrow (Thursday, October 13) on "The Secession Crisis of 1861 and the Communications Revolution of the 19th Century," in Room 1430 of the Law School Building. Professor Howe's lecture will open the Fall series of public events sponsored by the Center for the Liberal Arts and Free Institutions (CLAFI). It will also be the first in a five-year series of lectures in connection with the Civil War sesquicentennial. We expect to have two lectures each year, each dealing with events of the corresponding year of the Civil War.
As is customary with CLAFI lecturers, Howe will also participate in a seminar on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. with pizza to follow, in Room 2442 of the Law School Building. The subject of Howe's seminar will be Lincoln's First Inaugural Address. The seminar is open to UCLA faculty, students, and outsiders. We are almost at capacity, so if you would like to register for the seminar, please do so promptly by sending me an e-mail. No registration is needed for tomorrow's lecture. Both events are free and open to all, subject to the numerical limit for the seminar.
Later CLAFI events will include a staged reading of Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler; a lecture by Robin Nordli, star actress of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (Ashland) on "Pleasures and Pitfalls of Playing Shakespeare's Women"; a seminar with Nordli on "Hedda Gabler"; the second lecture in our Civil War series, by military historian Ethan Rafuse, on "Missouri, Manassas, and the 'People's Contest': 1861 as a Military Problem"; and a seminar with Rafuse on "Military History and the Opening of the Civil War."
