A variety of topics including the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Transformation of Dachau into a Memorial Site, the Changing Perspectives on the Society of the Roman Army, and the Roots of the Current Economic Situation will be offered by professors of the history and political science departments.
