“The Impossible Capital: Rome under Liberal and Fascist Regimes, 1870-1943”

The Chauncy Harris Distinguished Lecture, sponsored by the Department of Geography and the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences at Brigham Young University, will be delivered on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 11 a.m. in 250 Spencer W. Kimball Tower.

Agnew is a professor of geography at UCLA who specializes in political geography. He has previously taught at Syracuse University and the University of Chicago. In 2006 he received the Distinguished Scholarship Award from the Association of American Geographers.
