Lincoln Lecture Looming

"Abraham Lincoln and the First Person Plural" will be the topic of Tennessee Tech University’s study in leadership sponsored by the history department at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Foster Hall, Room 233. Focused on one of the greatest leaders in American history, the forum will examine Lincoln’s use of leadership and language during one of America’s worst conflicts. The study will also explore how Lincoln’s use of the first person plural served to construct a new world of collective subjects. The guest speaker is Peter S. Field, a former TTU assistant and associate professor. Field is currently a visiting scholar at Princeton University. The event is free and open to the public.
