7 Nights of History

a successor to the ‘7 Days That Changed the World lecture Series’

The past is all around us, but it only becomes history when we apply the tools of the historical discipline to think historically.  Each month a different U of S historian will deliver a public lecture that brings historical thinking to bear on a problem so that we can better understand the human condition and navigate our way into the future. The public is encouraged to ask questions and join in discussion and conversation after each talk.
