Town & Gown Dinner Lecture Series

Twice per year, once during the fall semester and once during the spring, members of the campus and Columbia communities gather for a dinner lecture featuring new perspectives on the history of American constitutional democracy. Most recently, Professors Annette Gordon-Reed (Harvard University) and Peter S. Onuf (retired, University of Virginia) gave a preview of their April 2016 co-authored book, “Most Blessed of the Patriarchs”: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination (video of Profs. Gordon-Reed and Onuf’s talk can be found here), and University of Notre Dame Distinguished Research Fellow Donald Drakeman gave a November 2016 lunchtime talk on the abiding importance of the humanities.
