The History Department of the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the Nebraska State Historical Society are sponsoring a new Brown Bag Lecture series in Kearney.

Dr. Jeff Wells, an assistant professor of history at UNK, will deliver the first lecture of the 2016-2017 series at noon, Wednesday, October 12, in the South Platte Room on the second floor of the Kearney Public Library, 2020 First Ave.

Wells's talk is titled, “‘The most interesting and picturesque fraud in the state of Nebraska’: Paul Vandervoort and Gilded Age Nebraska.” Vandervoort was a leader in the Populist Party, a third-party political movement that rose to prominence at a time when many voters felt that neither the Republicans nor the Democrats represented their interests. But was Vandervoort a true Populist or a political opportunist?

The new Brown Bag Lecture series in Kearney builds upon the success of the Nebraska State Historical Society Brown Bag Lecture series in Lincoln. The society holds lectures at noon on the third Thursday of each month at the Nebraska History Museum in Lincoln. The programs are available on the NSHS YouTube channel and broadcast on public access cable in Omaha, Bellevue, Hastings, North Platte, Grand Island, Papillion, South Sioux City, and Beatrice. More than 140 talks from the series are posted on the NSHS YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/NebraskaHistorical).

Two undergraduates presented papers at the 19th Great Plains Political Science Conference (Overland KS—October 7-8).

The students and their papers:

Following the Leader: An Analysis of the Political Spectacle over LGBT Rights in Russia, Ireland and the United States Christopher Navrkal
Human Trafficking: The Need for Policy Initiatives, Jessa Schultis

Reminder: The CNSS Semester meeting will be held on Monday, October 31--Copeland 142, 3-4pm; reception to follow the meeting.
