2010 Wilkins Lecture: Robin Jensen
It’s exciting to announce that Grand Forks native, Robin Jensen will present the 2010 Robert Wilkins lecture on Friday March 5, 2010 at 4:00 pm in the Lecture Bowl. This semi-annual talk is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Robert Wilkins, a long time member of the Department of History. Prof. Wilkins contributed to the departments development from the early 1960s through the 1980s during which time it was transformed from a small and fractious department to a major contributor to the intellectual life of the university.
Professor Jensen’s talk is entitled “Living Water: Rituals, Spaces, and Images of Early Christian Baptism” and it will coincide with the Fifth Annual Red River Valley History Conference that same day. The talk and the conference are free and open to the public.
Here’s the flier.
