Lincoln and the American CinemaSpeaker: Danny Siegel, associate professor of English
Abraham Lincoln has made appearances in hundreds of American movies, from Lincoln the Lover (1914) to Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter (2012). Danny Siegel will examine the most significant Lincoln films of the last century and discuss the conspicuously unheroic quality that has found its way to the center of every film: Lincoln's uncertainty.
Theodore Haddin Arts and Sciences Forum
The Theodore Haddin Arts and Sciences Forum is an ongoing lecture series at UAB's College of Arts and Sciences. The forum is a venue for Arts and Sciences faculty to talk about their research with their colleagues, students, and members of the public, and is designed to celebrate CAS faculty work and to launch new conversations.
Each academic year, the Forum presents a series of five to six informal lectures from a cross section of departments in the university. The main criterion for inclusion is that the topics presented be of interest to a broad range of faculty members, students, and the public. Meetings of the Haddin Forum currently take place in Heritage Hall room 524 and are free and open to the public. Lunch is provided.
