Charlene Haddock Seigfried will present "Jane Addams' Struggles with the Life of Art and the Art of Life" at the Killeen Chair Lecture Series on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater at St. Norbert College. This will be the second of three lectures presented by the Killeen Chair series.

This event will be free and open to the public.

Charlene Haddock Seigfried was the recipient of a Catholic liberal arts education. She brings her personal educational experience to her research. Seigfried will host a lecture on Jane Addams in light of the Killeen theme this year on women and liberal arts education. Addams was one of the first women to win the Nobel Peace Prize for being a founder for the U.S. Settlement House in 1889. Seigfried was awarded the Herbert W. Schneider award, 2009 'For distinguished contribution to the understanding and development of American Philosophy' by the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy.

The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy was established in 1984 to bring figures in the fields of theology and philosophy to the St. Norbert College campus. The Killeen Chair draws attention to the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education and highlights the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging. The Killeen Chair is an appropriate way of honoring Abbot Killeen's many contributions to St. Norbert College, the Norbertine Order and the wider community.
