The third lecture in the St. Norbert College Distinguished Lecture Series at the Door Community Auditorium will take place on Saturday, Feb. 12. Dr. Cheryl Kalny, Adjunct Assistant Professor of History at St. Norbert College, will present her lecture entitled “First Ladies and Their Public Images: Roosevelt to Obama.”
“As a social historian, I am interested in examining how the times influence the roles First Ladies play in American history, and how various First Ladies, themselves, redefine the role of this non-official, yet very powerful, position in presidential politics,” said Kalny.
Kalny has taught U.S. History and Women’s Studies at St. Norbert College and UW-Green Bay for many years. She considers herself an activist scholar – teaching, lecturing and publishing on women’s rights. Her most recent publication is entitled “Women’s Rights in the United States,” a chapter included in Women’s Rights: A Global View, published by Greenwood Press.
All lectures begin at 9 am and are free and open to the public. The Lecture Series is sponsored by Dahl Law Firm, LLC and Ross Estate Planning. AppleCreek Resort has provided lodging for Dr. Kalny. Ecology Sports Base Camp will provide refreshments for purchase.
