Ellery Golos Lecture
March 1, 2011
The Honors Tutorial College will host the inaugural Ellery Golos Lecture on Friday, March 4, at 2:10 in Scripps Auditorium. This lecture, entitled “‘All the Elements of Sublimity and Terror”: Veterans and the Psychological Impact of War,” will be presented by Dr. Stephen Goldman.
Tools of war have undergone significant technological advances since the American Civil War, but the experience of battle and its effects on the combatant remain strikingly similar today as they did 150 years ago. Join us as Dr. Goldman examines the great influences, positive and negative, of combat and military service on veterans’ lives by following a remarkable group of wounded Union servicemen during the Civil War and its aftermath.
A 1979 graduate of Ohio University’s Honors Tutorial College, Dr. Goldman is an independent consultant with extensive experience in academic/clinical medicine, public health, federal medical product safety regulation, and the pharmaceutical industry. An Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Dr. Goldman is a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Fellow of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine and Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. In 2003 he received the Outstanding HTC Alumni Award from the HTC Board of Visitors.
Dr. Goldman will also be presenting a lecture entitled “‘For What They Died, I Fight a Little Longer’: The Post Civil War Lives of Sergeant Robert Pinn and General Rufus Dawes” at the Athens County Historical Society on Saturday, March 5, from 2 to 4 PM at the Museum.
Both lectures are free and open to the public.
The Ellery Golos Lecture Series is named in honor of the founding director of Ohio University’s Honors Tutorial College. He was named Director Emeritus in 1988 and an Honorary HTC Alumnus in 2000. He and his wife Lila currently live in Minnesota. Future lectures will be presented by E.J. Graff, Philip Zecher, and Robin Blaetz.
