Annual Norman Thomas Memorial Lecture
Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 12:30 p.m.
Maynard Hall, Guthery Community Room
Jen Miller, Executive Director at the League of Women Voters of Ohio, will be addressing issues concerning women's participation in politics, the centenary of women's right to vote (2020), the centenary of the League of Women Voters (2020), and the recent rise in women's political voices at all levels of government.
Since 1972, The Norman Thomas Memorial Lecture has been delivered annually at the Marion Campus of The Ohio State University. Lecturers are chosen from a wide variety of fields; historians, labor leaders, educators, editors, and authors have spoken during the series. All lecturers invited to speak have demonstrated concerns similar to those for which Norman Thomas lived—peace, social justice, rational discourse, and the expansion of democracy.
The Norman Thomas Memorial Lecture is free and open to the public. The annual Norman Thomas Lecture is organized by the History Department at Ohio State Marion, and sponsored by the Harding/Thomas Endowment Fund, and Fahey Bank.
