U-M’s scholarly excellence in the sciences and engineering owes much to its Cold War ties to the US military. But excellence came with a price: a set of ethical challenges that by the late 1960s threatened to fracture the university community. Bringing together historians and participants in those debates, this forum explores the history and ethics of U-M’s ties to the national security state.

Panelists include: David Chudwin (alumnus, University of Michigan), Salem Elzway (University of Michigan), Joy Rohde (University of Michigan), Paul Rubinson (Bridgewater State University), Thomas Senior (University of Michigan), Ernest P. Young (University of Michigan).

Presented in conjunction with the program in Science, Technology, and Society. This LSA Bicentennial Theme Semester event is presented with support from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and the University of Michigan Bicentennial Office. Additional support provided by the Department of History and the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies.
