2019 - 47th Annual Ellen Churchill Semple Day

04/26/2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
W.T. Young Library Auditorium
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Karl Raitz

Semple Day is our annual, Spring celebration of the Geography Department at the University of Kentucky. Come and reacquaint yourself with the Department and University, and enjoy the day’s highlights: an afternoon open colloquium by a distinguished visitor and an evening celebration at the Lyric Theatre in downtown Lexington, only a few blocks from campus. The reception provides a chance to catch up with friends (and make new ones) over a social hour and banquet dinner, a venue for a brief program of awards and recognitions, and a convenient departure point for post-Semple celebrations on your own in Lexington’s burgeoning downtown entertainment scene.

The event will start at 2:00 PM in the W.T. Young Library, UK Athletics Association Auditorium and will reconvene at the Lyric Theatre at 6:00 PM.

Friday Afternoon Address by Professor Karl Raitz

Talk Title:  An Archipelago of Risk: Making Bourbon, Landscape, and Heritage in Nineteenth-Century Kentucky.
