Join us to celebrate the publication of Paul G. E. Clemens’ Rutgers since 1945: A History of the State University of New Jersey
In Rutgers since 1945, historian and Rutgers professor Paul G. E. Clemens chronicles Rutgers’ remarkable transition from the cold war, to the student protests of the 1960s and 1970s, to the growth of political identity on campus, and the increasing commitment to big-time athletics, all of which are just a few of the innumerable newsworthy elements that have driven the university’s evolution.
We highlight this event because Paul Clemens will be a guest speaker during our Honors Colloquium in Spring 2016.
The event will begin with an introduction by Rutgers professor Ben Justice, co-author of Rutgers: A 250th Anniversary Portrait, followed by a brief reading by Professor Clemens, and concluding with a signing and reception with light refreshments courtesy of the Rutgers University Alumni Association.
Copies of both books will be available for purchase.
Please join us for the first annual Aresty Center Research Slam! This event, held at the Honors College Lounge, will highlight the innovative work being done by Aresty research assistants, peer instructors, and faculty. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.

It will be fun, exciting, and informative so we hope to see you there!

A classically trained musical genius, chart-topping chanteuse, and Black Pow-er icon, Nina Simone is one of the most influential, beloved, provocative, and least understood artists of our time. On stage, she was known for utterly free, rapturous performances, earning her the epithet "High Priestess of Soul." But amid the violent, day-to-day fight for civil rights, she struggled to reconcile ar-tistic ambition with her fierce devotion to a movement.
Please join the CRE for a film screening of the Netflix original movie What Happened, Miss Simone, the story of the singer-activist Nina Simone.
Grace Howard of the Political Science department will facilitate the screening and lead a discussion following it. Dr. Ruth Feldstein, from the History Department at Rutgers-Newark and author of /How it Feels To Be Free: Black Women Entertainers and the Civil Rights Movement /(Oxford University Press, 2014) will serve as discussant.
Pizza and soda will be served.
