The History of Science, A Physicist's Perspective
CLAS Theme Year "Pursuing Racial Justice at the University of Iowa”
Prof. Vincent Rodgers
Department of Physics and Astronomy
University of Iowa

History, Science, the Art and Literature are often compartmentalized in the academy in order to organize the vast amount of information that human thinking has accrued.  In this talk we will explore a few aspects of how science drastically influenced society and in particular civil rights.  We will discuss the importance of entangling science back into the history not simply as "history of Science" but as human history.
