MIT Professor Jeffrey Ravel

On February 12th, we will have a unique look at the other side of MIT, the arts and humanities. As undergraduates we all took Humanities courses, whether willingly or grudgingly. But as we mature, many of those in the “grudgingly” category have come to a greater realization of their importance to our civilization and life.
Professor Jeffrey Ravel is head of the History section of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at MIT. Jeff was the faculty member on an MIT Alumni trip to Portugal and Northern Spain, where he met local member, Bob Blumberg, who invited him to speak with us.
Jeff will speak on the state of the department, on the MIT Museum of Maritime History, with which he is heavily involved, and his research into the history of French playing cards. The author of several books and involved in the revival of 18th century French theatre, he is, in MIT fashion, bringing data analysis and digital techniques to the study of history. Professor Ravel will provide an entertaining and educational talk on his work.
Come join us for an evening of good conversation around how MIT helps make the best scientists and engineers into well rounded leaders.
Dinner and networking will begin at 6:30. A Mediterranean dinner from Luna Grill will be served. The talk will begin at 7:15 followed by a Q&A session.
