Many of us know about the death of Julius Caesar from William Shakespeare’s famous play—but what took place on the Ides of March, 44 BC, was actually quite different from the events described by the Bard.

Barry Strauss, Cornell’s Bowmar Professor in Humanistic Studies and chair of the Department of History, is the author of a highly praised new book on the subject, The Death of Caesar, and he will share his fresh analysis of the events of that fateful day in a free lecture on July 22 at 7:00 p.m. in Kennedy Hall’s Call Auditorium. Free and open to the public, the lecture is sponsored by the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions.

Cornell’s free summer events, which run from June 23 to July 31, include Tuesday performances at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, Wednesday lectures at Call Auditorium*, and Friday concerts on the Arts Quad. For more information, visit, e-mail, or call 607.255.4987. If you need accommodations to participate in this event, please contact us as soon as possible.

*The School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions thanks the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for generously donating the use of Call Auditorium for the summer lecture series.
