Lunchtime Time Machine: "How to Change Minds and Influence People, or, What do Chemistry, Cards, and Chocolate Have in Common?"

 The History Department's undergraduate lecture series presents Dr. Jennifer Palmer, Assistant Prof, History. Think you can find all you need to know on Wikipedia? Think again! And again... and again. This talk will take a look at how the world's first major encyclopedia not only disseminated information, it also made people think.
