• History, Political Science, & Humanities Annual Events

     

     The Lee University Department of History, Political Science, and Humanities is proud to offer a variety of events for students, faculty, and members of the community throughout the year. We hope to enrich the lives of others through a Christ-centered exploration of the liberal arts, from community events to academic colloquiums.

    Tour of Historic Homes Tour of Historic Homes

    The Tour of Historic Homes is a part of the “Discovering Historic Cleveland” program at Lee. During the spring semester, community residents do us the extraordinary honor of allowing us to research and tour their beautiful, historic homes. Lee history majors use resources from local families and the archives of the Cleveland Public Library History Branch to discover the stories that these homes tell. The students then provide commentary and visual aids as community residents are invited to walk through the halls of history.

    Constitution Bowl

    The Constitution Bowl is an annual event organized and hosted by Lee's Political Science Department to celebrate Constitution Day by popularizing the Constitution and the events around its creation. Area high school teams compete tournament-style by answering questions pertaining to the Constitution and other Founding documents. The Constitution Bowl is a fun way to get students to learn about the text of the Constitution as well as to engage in a larger discussion about our founding principles and the proper role of government in our lives.

    Fort Hill Cemetery Walking Tour Fort Hill Cemetery Walking Tour

    The Fort Hill Cemetery Walking Tour is a part of the “Discovering Historic Cleveland” program at Lee. During the fall semester we are privileged to introduce community residents to one of our local treasures, historic Fort Hill Cemetery. Lee history majors use resources found in the archives of the Cleveland Public Library History Branch to construct biographical sketches of historical personages buried at Fort Hill, and actors bring these important individuals back to life to tell their story.

     

    Maryville-Lee Symposium Lee Symposium:
    Conversations on Faith and the Liberal Arts

    For one weekend each autumn, Christian scholars and administrators gather to explore a single “big idea.” While the specific topic changes from year to year, the framework for exploration – liberal arts consciousness formed in a church-related context – will remain constant.

    Purpose: To invite people from diverse backgrounds who are leaders in academic and religious life to engage in civil discourse about difficult questions.

    Format: Invited speakers will present, followed by invited responses by relevant scholars. There will be ample time for discussion and dialogue. The number of participants will be limited so that all discussion will be plenary.

    Results: The Symposium will begin important conversations that will continue elsewhere in printed form, as we distribute the published proceedings.
