The History Department's annual Pflaum lecture will be held on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 7:00 pm in the Stern Great Room. This year's lecture, "Why Don't American Cities Burn Very Often?" will be presented by Dr. Michael Katz, Annenberg Professor of History and a Research Associate in the Population Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout his academic career, Dr. Katz has focused on three major areas of research: the history of American education, the history of urban social structure and family organization, and the history of social welfare and poverty. He is also the author of numerous books including The Price of Citizenship and Redefining the American Welfare State. Please plan to attend!
