Susan Estrich, one of the nation's leading legal scholars, is Robert Kingsley Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California. She was named one of the most influential public intellectuals of the century. Known for her quick wit and humor as a commentator on Fox News, Estrich was one of the first women to run a national presidential campaign, the first female president of The Harvard Law Review and the youngest woman to be tenured at Harvard Law School. Estrich will discuss "The 2008 Election: What's at Stake?"

The Humanities Lecture Series, begun in 1947, is the oldest continuing series at the University of Kansas and one of the most distinguished lecture series in the Midwest. The goal of the series is to bring scholars and artists to campus whose work encompasses or redefines central problems in the humanities, and who can frame their intellectual concerns so as to reach a multi-disciplinary audience including students, faculty and interested community members.

Partial funding for the Humanities Lecture Series is provided by The National Endowment for the Humanities 2000 Challenge Grant.

The Humanities Lecture Series is presented by The Hall Center for the Humanities, and is co-sponsored by Kansas Public Radio. For more information about the Hall Center or the Lecture Series, contact us at (785) 864-4798 or hallcenter@ku.edu or visit our web site at www.hallcenter.ku.edu.
