USD Presents History Department Schell Lecture Oct 17
Bunk will present a lecture entitled “A Copy of Spain: Spanish Immigrants in the United States and the Challenges of Assimilation.”
The author of “Ghosts of Passion: Martyrdom, Gender, and the Origins of the Spanish Civil War,” Bunk’s recent work centers on the history of sport, especially boxing and soccer, and has been published in the Journal of American Ethnic History, Radical History Review and the Journal of Urban History. He also studies the history of soccer in the United States and is founder and host of the Soccer History USA podcast, a monthly program examining this history of the sport in the U.S.
The Schell Lecture is sponsored by the USD history department and named after Dean Herbert S. Schell (1899-1994), who served the University of South Dakota and the State of South Dakota for more than 40 years. The lecture honors his service by spreading knowledge of history throughout the campus and community to which he was devoted. History department faculty are responsible for choosing a speaker whose research holds interest and importance to the department as well as the public.
