The F.E.L. Priestley Memorial Lectures in the History of Ideas are funded by several of Professor F.E.L. Priestley’s former students. The lectures are interdisciplinary and may focus on literature, economics, history, geography, philosophy, theology, science, political science, as well as business, law, and medicine. Three in number and given on successive days, the lectures reflect their namesake’s broad interest in the history of ideas, as well as his dedication to teaching and scholarship. Accordingly, the Priestley Lecturer may participate in graduate and undergraduate classes in the appropriate subject areas, as well as meet with faculty and students.
