John Witte, Jr., director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University, will deliver a Jefferson Memorial Lecture April 21 at 4:10 p.m. in the International House auditorium.  The title of his lecture is “Sharia in the West?  What Place for Religious Legal Systems in American and Other Democracies.”

At the beginning of May, Steven Squyres, a professor of astronomy at Cornell University, will give two Hitchcock Lectures in the auditorium of International House, each starting at 2:10 p.m.  His topic on May 2 will be “Roving Mars: Spirit, Opportunity, and the Exploration of the Red Planet.”  The next day, May 3, he will speak on “The Future of Planetary Exploration.”


Did you miss Robert Reich’s mid-March Weinstock Lecture, “Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future”?  You can still catch it online, anytime, on the Graduate Council Lectures website.

In the same spot, you can see Reich on Conversations with History, interviewed by Harry Kreisler.  And both Reich appearances are available on YouTube.
