Freeman Dyson to deliver the annual Drell Lecture on March 14
Freeman Dyson, one of the world's preeminent physicists, will deliver the 2001 Drell Lecture at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, in Kresge Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Dyson, professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, is known for his pioneering work in quantum electrodynamics and for his popular books including Imagined Worlds, Disturbing the Universe and Origins of Life.
A consistent champion of the ethical uses of science, Dyson frequently challenges society to reconcile technology and social justice. His lecture, titled "Engineers' Dreams: Successes and Failures in Applying Science to Maintain Peace and Help the Poor," reflects that lifelong effort.
The Drell Lecture is sponsored by the Stanford Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC). For more information contact Taylor Bucci at (650) 725-4918 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
