Staff Lunchtime Series With Professor Petropoulos, Nov. 15

Staff and faculty are invited to attend a brown bag lecture by Jonathan Petropoulos, the John V. Croul Professor of European History, from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15 in Roberts Hall North, room 105. He will discuss Hangin’ with the Princes: Reflections on Writing Royals and the Reich, based on the research for his newest book Royals and the Reich (Oxford University Press).

Petropoulos serves as director of the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies and associate director of The Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights. His teaching and research interests include German history, art and politics, European social history, and the Holocaust. He was appointed research director of the President’s Advisory Commission on Holocaust Assets in the United States (1999-2001), and is an internationally recognized expert on Nazi-looted art treasures.

The lecture is free of charge, but reservations are requested by contacting June McCartney on the Office of the President, extension 18111.

The event is organized by the Claremont McKenna Activities Committee, which also organized a two-session presentation in October by David Sadava, the Pritzker Family Foundation Professor of Biology, on What’s New in Cancer. Additional events will be announced later this semester.
