NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- On October 19th and 20th Iona College in partnership with the Thomas Paine National Historical Association, will host a gathering of national and international scholars for presentations and discussion on the life, legacy and ideas of a long neglected Founding Father of the United States, Thomas Paine.
In addition to 32 papers delivered in 12 sessions of scholarly presentations, the conference will also feature a keynote speech by Lewis Lapham (former editor of Harper’s Magazine), a presentation of the play, Citizen Paine, as well as receptions at the Thomas Paine National Historical Association Building and the Thomas Paine Cottage.
Thanks to a grant from the James Hervey Johnson Charitable Educational Trust, the conference is free for Iona faculty, students, independent scholars and the general public.
