UNCW Sherman Lecture to Explore “Monuments and Memory”

Wednesday, October 17

Farah Peterson, a legal historian who holds a Ph.D. in American history from Princeton University, will deliver the 2018 Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture.

Peterson will discuss “Monuments and Memory: How the Law Writes American History” at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 in the Warwick Center. The free event is presented by the UNCW Department of History and is open to the public.

The Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture Series was endowed by Phillip Sherman and Ann Sherman-Skiba in honor of their parents, Virginia and Derrick Sherman, lifelong learners and friends of the UNCW Department of History. The series provides an opportunity for young scholars to share research that connects history with current world challenges or events.
