About the Levine Lecture

The Levine Lecture series began in 1991 in recognition of Dr. Emanuel Levine, a member of Rider's History Department for nearly forty years. His specialties were ancient history and archaeology, and he was the sort of professor a student never forgets. He was also a wonderful colleague and a good friend. The Rider University History Department is especially thankful to his wife, Harriet Levine, and his family for making this annual distinguished lecture series possible.

The Levine Lecture has brought an impressive group of scholars to speak at Rider over the years. These historians are leaders in their fields and the recipients of prestigious prizes and awards for their scholarship including multiple Pulitzer Prize winners. Some of the most influential historians of our time have delivered Levine Lectures.
