The Max Rosenn Lecture in Law & Humanities
Sunday, March 26, 2023 (2:00 PM - 4:00 PM) (EDT)
Award-winning writer and historian Jill Lepore will deliver the Wilkes University Max Rosenn Lecture in Law and Humanities at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 26, 2023, at the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center for the Performing Arts, 239 South River Street, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
A bestselling author, journalist, and professor of history, Lepore’s books and essays explore absences and asymmetries in the historical record. Her popular podcasts examine themes including “Who killed truth?” and “the rise of doubt.”
She once wrote "History is the art of making an argument about the past by telling a story accountable to evidence." Lively, funny, and argumentative, Lepore’s books have been described as surprising and enlightening, as well as elegant, sobering, beautifully written and intellectually rigorous.
Lepore is the David Woods Kemper Professor of American History and Affiliate Professor of Law at Harvard University. She is also a staff writer at The New Yorker. Other essays and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Times Literary Supplement, Foreign Affairs, Yale Law Journal, American Scholar, and American Quarterly. Her works have been widely translated and anthologized.
