Truman Faculty Forum to Highlight Research

Daniel R. Mandell, associate professor of history, will present a lecture entitled “All Men Are Created Equal: Concepts and Controversies in Revolutionary America,” at the April 1 meeting of the Truman Faculty Forum. The presentation will be at 8 p.m. in Magruder Hall Room 2001. A reception with refreshments will take place afterward. This event is free and open to the public.

 Mandell’s lecture will outline the intellectual developments around the phrase “All Men are Created Equal,” and describe how it created tension between liberty and equality during the nation’s first half-century that is still with us today.

The Truman Faculty Forum was created in 2003 to give faculty the opportunity to present their research and creative work to the Truman community and to enhance the importance of scholarship and creativity in the culture of the institution. In the spirit of the liberal arts, the Forum provides one more way of exposing all members of the Truman community to various fields of investigation. The April 1 lecture is the second in the Spring 2009 series.
