The “Nebraska Lectures: Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series” will offer one talk each month exploring the rich history of Nebraska’s land-grant institution. In partnership with Nebraska Humanities, all talks will be live-streamed via social media channels and captured as podcasts for public access.

The second talk in the series will examine the architectural history of the university and include an NET-produced virtual reality tour of University Hall — the first building on campus. The talk, “Building Nebraska U: The Saga of University Hall and the Origins of the Modern University,” is at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Nebraska Champions Club. It will be led by Kay Logan-Peters, professor of libraries and creator of an online tour of the university’s architectural history.
Logan-Peters is also author of “University of Nebraska–Lincoln,” a book that features more than 180 historic images of the university.

All talks in the N150-inspired Chancellor’s Lecture series are free and open to the public. The talks will be streamed online and made available via podcast. Additional lecture topics and dates will be announced. Regular updates will be provided through the Nebraska Lectures website.

The Nebraska Lecture is sponsored by the Research Council, Office of the Chancellor, Office of Research and Economic Development, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and Humanities Nebraska.
