Strug Lecture, Professor Robert Abzug

Friday, March 21: "'Not in Our Town': Christians, Jews, and Skinheads in Billings, Montana, 1993-94"

Notes about our speaker: Robert Abzug taught at Berkeley and UCLA before coming to Texas in 1978. He held the Eric Voegelin Visiting Professorship at the University of Munich, 1990-91. He is also a former chair of American Studies (1990-96) and founding Director of Liberal Arts Honors Programs at Texas (1996-2002). Professor Abzug's scholarship explores the formation of social and moral consciousness in American culture. He has worked in three major fields: social reform and religious life in antebellum America, America and the Holocaust, and, most recently, the interpenetration of religion and psychology in modern American culture. His research has been supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, and numerous other foundations.
