Claire McCaskill, a former U.S. senator from 2007-2018, will deliver the 2021 Weil Lecture on American Citizenship at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25, in a virtual event sponsored by the Institute for the Arts & Humanities.
McCaskill was first scheduled as the speaker for the March 2020 Weil Lecture, which was postponed because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 lecture will stream to guests online live from Hill Hall at Carolina. After McCaskill’s remarks, there will be a Q&A session with questions submitted by the online audience.
“From her town halls in rural Missouri to her time serving at the national level, Sen. McCaskill has proven herself to be a deep listener and champion for women,” said IAH Director Patricia Parker.
