Join us for the 2019 Lincoln Legacy Lecture Series presented by the UIS Center for Lincoln Studies on Tuesday, October 15 at the UIS Student Union. A reception with light refreshments will begin at 6pm with the lecture to follow at 7pm.

This year’s Lincoln Legacy lecture will focus on Lincoln, Immigration, and Citizenship with Professors Jason Silverman and Mark Steiner, experts in the field. Both scholars will discuss Lincoln’s views on immigration and citizenship and Dr. Michael Burlingame, the Chancellor Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies, will moderate and provide an overview. This topic is not only timely in our national discussion but also provides an historical perspective during one of our nation’s most troubled times. Dr. Silverman is author of Lincoln and the Immigrant, and Dr. Steiner is author of the forthcoming book Lincoln and Citizenship. Both books are available in the Southern Illinois University Press’s Concise Lincoln Library.

Free and open to the public
