Larry Calderon hosts NSU Speaker’s Forum, May 7

Gary Gershman, Ph.D., professor in the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, Division of Humanities, will be the featured speaker at the May 7 Speaker’s Forum. Gershman will speak on “Education Outside the Classroom: The Use of Study Travel to Enhance the College Experience.”

Gershman, who was named professor of the year in 2005, teaches law and history, with classes ranging from basic United States history to classes that cover diverse issues such as Sports and History, the Sixties, the Holocaust, the First Amendment, American Immigration, and the History of Crime and Punishment.

Gershman has published two books since coming to NSU, Encyclopedia on the US Government: Volume 1 – the Congress (2008), and Death Penalty on Trial (2005), both published by ABC-CLIO press.  Additionally, his latest research focuses on sports rivalries and what they suggest about historical tensions in American society (a paper was delivered on this topic at the Nine Conference in Arizona in 2009).

The weekly NSU Speaker’s Forum is sponsored by Larry Calderon, Ed.D., NSU’s vice president for community and governmental affairs. Taking place each Friday from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., these forums allow speakers from the university to speak on a vast array of topics, including their latest programs, research, campus activities and more. The forum includes breakfast and a question and answer session at the conclusion of the speaker presentation.
