2023 Earle C. Clements Lecture-Symposium featuring Jill Lepore

2023 Earle C. Clements Lecture-Symposium featuring Jill Lepore

Join us for the 2023 Earle C. Clements Lecture-Symposium, featuring author and historian Jill Lepore.

Drawing from her book, The Deadline: Essays, Lepore will reflect on the relationship between America's past and its fractious present, exploring questions such as "Why does impeachment no longer work?" and "Why do race riot commissions never fix anything?"

Lepore's latest book, The Deadline: Essays, will be available for purchase and signing following the lecture. The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated.

Jill 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. Her other essays and reviews have appeared in the New York Times, Times Literary Supplement, Foreign Affairs, Yale Law Journal, American Scholar, and American Quarterly.

The Clements Lecture-Symposium is made possible by the Clements Memorial Fund, a gift from the Abell family: Bess Clements Abell, Clements' daughter; her husband Tyler Abell; and their sons Lyndon and Dan Abell.
