Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. James E. Mackin is pleased to announce that Dr. Matthew Hendley, Professor of History, will deliver this year’s Susan Smith Lecture titled “British Women, Popular Imperialism and Memory- Re-thinking the Legacy of the First World War,” on Tuesday, April 10, at 7 p.m. in the Otsego Grille, Morris Conference Center. A hearty hors d’oeuvre reception will follow the lecture in the Le Cafe.
Created to recognize faculty achievement outside the classroom, the Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is named in memory of the late SUNY Oneonta professor of English. Dr. Hendley is the twenty-fourth recipient of this prize.
This event and the student awards presented are made possible by the generous gifts of SUNY Oneonta Alumni to the 2017-2018 Fund for Oneonta. The Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is made possible by an endowment created through the generosity of Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Mary Smith in memory of their daughter, Susan, and in honor of her commitment to academic excellence. The lecture is free and open to the public.
