Professor Sheldon Anderson, Miami University, Oxford, OH, gives the annual Albert Mann Memorial Lecture on March 3, 2015. He will present “Yalta: the Meeting that Changed to World.” Anderson will focus on the legacy of this crucial meeting between Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin in the latter stages of World War II and the still unfolding legacy of that meeting 70 years later.  

“Anderson is a leading scholar on the political and diplomatic history of Eastern Europe, particularly the Cold War and former Soviet bloc nations,” said History Department Chair Tom Taylor. “This is an extremely timely topic with the current state of U.S.-Russia relations.”

The Al Mann lecture, which is free and open to the public, takes place at 7 p.m. on March 3, 2015, in Wyckoff auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

The annual Al Mann Memorial Lecture commemorates the legacy of Asian History Professor Albert Mann, who taught at Seattle University for 35 years before his death in 1997. The Al Mann lecture is sponsored by the History Department.

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 41 undergraduate major degrees, 37 minors, and 6 master's degrees.
