Ted Rose Lecture Series

About Dr. Ted Rose

Dr. Vattel "Ted" Rose was an Associate Professor with the African America Studies Department at Oho University from 1978 to the early 2000s. As chair of the department he helped to build a legacy of excellence that resonates until today.

During his tenure at Ohio University, Rose led the department for almost two decades and ensured its continuation long after his retirement. Consequently, the department inaugurated an annual lecture series in his honor.

The annual lecture series is an opportunity to introduce and recognize nationally and internationally recognized scholars in or closely affiliated with the discipline of African American Studies. These lectures provide the Ohio University community with persons who have contributed to the close examination and understanding of African and African American life, history and culture.
