Today’s Lecture Connected to Lincoln Exhibit at TNCC Cancelled, Other Presentations Ahead

Published: March 29, 2012

A special lecture by Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) Assistant Professor of English Hollis Pruitt scheduled today at 2 p.m. on the Hampton campus as part of a traveling exhibit titled “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” has been cancelled. The professor’s lecture is among a series of free presentations and programs TNCC is hosting in conjunction with the exhibit which lasts through May in Wythe Hall Gallery.

TNCC Adjunct Professor Brian Croteau will present “Lincoln’s Constitutional Issues: The Right to Secede and Habeas Corpus”:

  • Tuesday, April 3 at 2 p.m.,  Wythe Hall Gallery
  • Monday, April 9 at noon, Historic Triangle campus in Williamsburg
  • Wednesday, April 11 at 2 p.m.,  Wythe Hall Gallery

Croteau, a retired U.S. Army officer, teaches Survey of Western Culture II and History of Western Civilization II. He holds a Master’s degree in History from Western Illinois University and a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education from the University of Vermont.

The traveling exhibition encourages visitors to form a nuanced view of Lincoln by engaging them with Lincoln’s struggle to reconcile his policy preferences with basic American ideals of liberty and equality. The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the traveling exhibition, which was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to life.
