Since 1968, the Department of History has hosted the History Forum, attracting national and international scholars to address topics of current as well as historical and academic interest. The History Forum welcomes the general public to attend the public lectures and interact with the speakers and the Duquesne University community.
The History Forum is always free and open to the public.
Our 46th Annual History Forum took place on Thursday, October 9, 2014, and featured guest speaker Ms. Barbara Franco, President and Executive Director of the Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum. The title of her lecture was "The American Civil War: Conflicting Views of Faith and Freedom."
