One of the most popular programs on campus, history at the City College of New York has been crafted to meet the needs of the most voracious history scholar, as well as those students with an interest in a particular era or region. The accomplished faculty has made its own mark in this arena both at the college and throughout the world and prepares students for a wide range of future careers and challenges. Graduates not only represent City College at major higher educational institutions around the country but have gone on to successful careers in a wide range of legal, medical, entertainment, educational and other fields.
The next event in the History Department's Science & Society speaker series will take place on April 3 from 5-6:30 pm in SH 95. It features a conversation between the eminent South African artist William Kentridge and the Princeton historian of science D. Graham Burnett, about Kentridge's piece "The Refusal of Time," which is currently on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Inspired in part by Einstein's relativity theory, the piece addresses the history, aesthetics, and politics of time in the modern world.
