Sherman Emerging Scholar Series

Since 2002, the UNCW History Department has hosted an annual lecture series established to honor two life-long learners and friends of the department, Virginia and Derrick Sherman. Each year, a selection committee conducts a national competition to select the Sherman Emerging Scholar. The History Department hosts the Sherman Scholar on campus, during which time he or she visits UNCW classes, provides interviews to the local press, meets with faculty members, and presents a major lecture to which the entire Wilmington community is invited.  The public lecture is followed the next day by a roundtable discussion of its themes featuring several eminent researchers.  All lectures are published by the UNCW Publication Laboratory and distributed to UNC Repository Libraries.

For more information, contact Dr. Lynn Wood Mollenauer, Chair of the Department of History.

Join us for the Sherman Echo Lecture with Dr. Kaisha Esty on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at 5pm in Morton Hall 100
