The Medieval and Early Modern Studies Program at Assumption College held its third annual MEMS Faculty Lecture on Tuesday, March 18 at 4:30 p.m. Dr. Jeremy Geddert, assistant professor of political science, presented a talk on philosopher Hugo Grotius. Geddert tackled the question of “Is Hugo Grotius really an early modern possessive individualist?” in his lecture to a full audience in the Testa Atrium.
Lance Lazar, associate professor of history, introduced Geddert and gave a brief explanation of the MEMS program.
“We try to bring a very broad spectrum of disciplines together,” he said. The program usually brings in scholars from outside the College for fall events and hosts speakers from on campus during the second semester.
“In the spring, we like to showcase the quality we have right here at Assumption College,” said Lazar.
