Flagler College’s 2015 Community Lecture Series continues on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, with a talk that examines the response of Old World indigenous peoples to New World exploration. Flagler College Assistant Professor of Social Sciences Lori Lee will lead the discussion on the topic, “The Steel Crown: Indigenous Response to Exploration,” in the Ponce Hall Solarium at Flagler College.
This lecture will examine indigenous responses to exploration at varying scales by drawing on case studies from North America, Africa, and South America.
The Flagler College Community Lecture Series began in 2007 to offer the St. Augustine community an opportunity to explore topics covering arts, religion, politics, culture, history, economics and more with experts on the Flagler College faculty. Lectures take place monthly, last approximately one hour, and are followed by a coffee and pastry reception.
With the 450th Commemoration events occurring this year, the Community Lecture Series will focus throughout 2015 on the theme: Exploration: Passions, Implications and Reflections.
