The University’s on-line learning initiative has released two new segments. One highlights the fall 2005 conference on women and war, the other offers an Alumni College about Harvard’s role in the Olympics. (To access the features, go to http://athome.harvard.edu.)

“Women in the War Zone: How Does Gender Matter?” brought together 20 experts from a variety of fields to discuss the nature of war and the role of gender within it, as well as some of their own personal and professional experiences. The event was sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the University.

More than 130 Harvard alumni have competed in the Olympic Games since 1896. “Harvard in the Olympics,” held in Boston earlier this year, featured a group of them—athletes, coaches, and administrators—talking about the games. The event was co-sponsored by the Harvard Alumni Association and the Harvard Varsity Club.
