BGSU history dept. welcomes Allison for distinguished lecture

Bill Allison, of Georgia Southern University, will present the 2022 Gary R. Hess Lecture in Policy History on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in Room 201 (Sky Bank Room) of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union at BGSU. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Allison’s lecture, “Contested Memories: The Vietnam War 50 Years On,” considers how contested narratives persist as the nation approaches the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the American War in Vietnam. His lecture will examine how the war remains unsettled, if not divisive. From Ken Burns and Lynn Novik’s “The Vietnam War,” to veterans and remembrance to allegations involving comfort women in Vietnam, the Vietnam War’s memory and legacy is international as it is personal, yet its study is more interdisciplinary and rich than ever.

The Gary R. Hess Lecture in Policy History at BGSU is an annual lectureship held at the initiative of Hess’s former students to recognize his contributions to the profession and the university during his 45 years of service from 1964 to 2009.

This event is sponsored by the BGSU Department of History, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Political Science and the Asian Studies Program.
