The Daemen College/Rosary Hill Alumni Association Duns Scotus Lecture Series will present “Belva Lockwood: Trailblazer for Women’s Leadership,” 7:30 p.m., March 20, 2012, in partnership with the Daemen Women’s History Month Committee. This lecture will be held in Wick Center on the Daemen campus, 4380 Main Street, in Amherst. This event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
The event will feature a talk by Maryann Saccomando Freedman, first woman president of the Erie County and New York State Bar Associations. Saccomando Freedman’s presentation will discuss and highlight the life of Belva Lockwood, who was the first woman admitted to the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, ran for president in 1884, and was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Time will be allowed for questions and answers at the end of the lecture.
John Duns Scotus (c. 1266–1308), a Franciscan priest, was a theologian, philosopher, and logician. During his tenure at Oxford, the systematic examination of what differentiates theology from philosophy and science began in earnest.
