Friday, September 15 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Jesse Hall, 410 Columbia, MO 65211

To kick off the Kinder Institute’s Fall 2017 Colloquium Series, William Woods Assistant Professor of History Craig Bruce Smith will give a September 15 talk at 3:30 PM in Jesse Hall 410 on Benjamin Franklin’s repudiation of the European tradition of rewarding lineage and his promotion, instead, of a democratized notion of honor as something earned through action, merit, and a fulfillment of republican duty.
