The University’s on-line learning programs (accessible via athome.harvard.edu) provide a wide range of material on courses, events, speakers, and other happenings around campus. Some of the new offerings include:

“Women and War in the Twentieth Century” features material from the Schlesinger Library and scholarly lectures on topics such as the lives of “war brides” and on women terrorists. Incoming University president Drew Gilpin Faust also discusses her evolution as an historian.

“String Theory, Black Holes, and the Fundamental Laws of Nature” looks at cutting-edge techniques humans have devised to understand the universe.

“Hasty Pudding Awards of 2006” includes video of Halle Berry and Richard Gere. Snippets from celebrity roasts, skits, and parades from years past can also be viewed.
