Claude A. Clegg III
Professor of History, Indiana University
"A Town, A Photograph, and a Lynching Close to Home"
Claude Clegg is an award-winning historian whose has published widely in African American
history. His most recent book, Troubled Ground: A Tale of Murder, Lynching, and Reckoning in
the New South, is a brilliant exploration of a deeply personal story. In 1906, Professor Clegg's
hometown of Salisbury, North Carolina, was the site of a triple lynching that became a national
news story. Professor Clegg's talk, based on his book, will weave this local tragedy into a larger
American story about race, violence, and memory.
The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow Professor Clegg's talk and
signed copies of Troubled Ground will be available for purchase.

Deepening Student Learning: A Workshop on Critical Reflection
Tuesday, May 7, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
College Church Ballroom
Critical reflection is essential for deep learning
and is a hallmark of Jesuit education. However, students
often need to be taught how to engage in meaningful
reflection, and even when faculty and staff create opportunities
for reflection, the results are not always satisfying. In this
interactive workshop, Dr. Patti Clayton will share a
research-grounded model for critical reflection and engage
participants in a hands-on workshop to enhance understanding
of the features of critical reflection. Participants will leave with
practical strategies for deepening students' critical reflection,
both in and out of class. This workshop is open to faculty, staff,
and graduate students. For more information, and to register,
please visit http://slu.edu/cttl/events/deepening-student-learning.
Continental breakfast will be served.
This event is sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs, the Division of Student Development,
and the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning
