Duckwall Lecture: Dreams in the New Century
It was a time of stunning boom and bust episodes, an era of extremes, and a decade of historic changes that point to Florida’s future. Join eminent historian and author Gary Mormino, Ph.D., as he discusses early twenty-first-century Florida and its connections to some of the most significant events in contemporary American history. This program will occur virtually and in person. Registration is required. Gary R. Mormino is the Frank E. Duckwall professor emeritus in history at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. He continues to teach a class in Modern Florida and World War II. Presently, he is the scholar in residence for Florida Humanities. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. His most recent title Dreams in a New Century was published by the University Press of Florida in May 2022.
The 13th annual Duckwall Lecture is made possible by the Frank E. Duckwall Foundation. Established in 1983, the foundation supports initiatives that make Florida history accessible to the Tampa Bay community and advance research of the state’s history. This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Tampa Bay History Center. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
