MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College will host Dr. Steven D. Ealy, senior fellow at Liberty Fund, Monday, September 17 at 7 p.m. in Saliba Chapel. Dr. Ealy’s presentation is the fall lecture in the biennial Albert Sidney Johnson Lecture Series, sponsored by the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Pi Gamma Mu, the International Social Science Honor Society.
Dr. Ealy’s presentation is titled, “Self Government, The Federalist Papers and the Meaning of the Constitution”.
“We are very blessed to have Dr. Steve Ealy as our ASJ lecture series speaker,” said Dr. H. Lee Cheek Jr., division chair. “His thoughts on the Federalist and the development of the U.S. Constitution will appeal to people of all ages and political views. For many years, Dr. Ealy has been researching and writing on the topic of American constitutionalism. His many years as a highly respected professor and lecturer will help bring the ‘big issues’ in the grand struggle to create a Constitution to life in his lecture. We will be amazed to see that the founding debates continue today, often with less insight and rigor than during the Early Republic!”
The Liberty Fund, Inc., is a private educational foundation established to encourage the study of the idea of a society of free and responsible individuals. The foundation develops, supervises and finances its own education activities to foster thought and encourage discourse on enduring intellectual issues pertaining to liberty. Each year, it hosts over 180 conferences throughout the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Australia.
Before joining Liberty Fund in 1993, Dr. Ealy was a professor of government at Armstrong State College in Savannah (1981-1993), and assistant professor of political science at Western Carolina University (1979-1981). He is the author of Communication, Speech, and Politics: Habermas and Political Analysis, and a number of articles about Robert Penn Warren. He serves on the Political Science Advisory Council for Furman University and the Board of Visitors for the Pepperdine University School of Public Policy.
“The Albert Sidney Johnson Lecture Series is a scholarly enterprise devoted to honoring Professor Johnson (1898-1934), as well as celebrating the integral role assumed by the social and behavioral sciences in Christian and humane learning,” adds Dr. Cheek.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, or the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences, contact Dr. Cheek for more information, 912-583-3151.
