Distinguished Speakers Series
“Explaining the Elegant Universe”
Brian Greene, Ph.D. | Hosted by the college’s Division of Math, Science, and Technology
Wednesday, Nov. 14
Miniaci Performing Arts Center
Considered by The Washington Post to be “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today,” Greene is a string theorist and author of the national bestseller The Elegant Universe, which recounts how the theories of general relativity and quantum mechanics transformed our understanding of the universe. The book sold more than a million copies and became an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning NOVA special that Greene hosted.
His second book, bestseller The Fabric of the Cosmos, was adapted into another NOVA miniseries. Greene’s latest, The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, was published in January 2011 and has received similar accolades. His work has also appeared in Wired Magazine and the New York Times.
