On the 50th anniversary of one of America’s most traumatic events, historians from the University of Kansas – Theodore A. Wilson, Jonathan Hagel, Jennifer Weber, and Jeffrey P. Moran – take a fresh look at the impact and legacy of the death of President John F. Kennedy.

They will discuss the countless theories that have sprung up around the assassination, the event’s depiction in and impact on popular culture, the central “what if?” of the assassination (would Kennedy have escalated or reduced our involvement in Vietnam?), and the connections between Kennedy’s death and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Co-sponsored by the University of Kansas College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
