Historian David Hackett Fischer to speak at Coastal

David Hackett Fischer, one of America's most distinguished historians, will give a lecture at Coastal Carolina University on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m. in the Wall Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

In his talk, titled "The Revival of History," Fischer will examine how a revolution in thought in the late 20th century has given rise to new approaches to historical thinking.

Fischer, who is Warren Professor of History at Brandeis University, has also taught at Oxford University, Harvard University and at the Universities of Otago and Waikato in New Zealand.

Charles Joyner, Burroughs Distinguished Professor of Southern History at Coastal, calls Fischer "one of the most brilliant scholars of his generation."

A native of Baltimore, Fischer has received numerous awards for his scholarship and teaching. He is author of 10 books, including such prize-winning works as Albion's Seed, Paul Revere's Ride and The Great Wave: Price Movements in Modern History.

The lecture is being presented in conjunction with the annual induction ceremony of Coastal's chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, a national honor society for history majors. Fischer's visit to Coastal is sponsored by Phi Alpha Theta and Coastal's Honors Program, with support from the Waccamaw Center for Cultural and Historical Studies.
