Notre Dame Professor to Discuss Cicero at Kirwan Lecture April 4
Omaha - The Roman philosopher Cicero is credited by many as shaping modern language. It’s no surprise, then, that the historical figure is also considered by many to be a master politician.
On Thursday, April 4, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Political Science will host Walter Nicgorski, Ph.D., a professor of political science from Notre Dame who has researched Cicero’s historical impact in the world of political science, for this year's Kirwan Lecture.
Nicgorski’s presentation, titled “Cicero: Statesman as Well as Political Philosopher,” will take place at the Thompson Alumni Center’s Centennial Hall beginning at 7 p.m. The Thompson Alumni Center is located on UNO’s Dodge Campu, 6705 Dodge St.
The event is free and open to the public.
Nicgorski is emeritus professor in the Program of Liberal Studies and the Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. Initially joining Notre Dame in 1964, Nocgorski has been a visiting professor at Harvard University and Cambridge University.
Nicgorski is also the author of several books on political philosophy, including his most recent work: “Cicero’s Practical Philosophy,” which was released in 2012.
The Kirwan Lecture is named after Kent Kirwan, a UNO emeritus professor of political science, who remains active on campus and in the community.
