News Display: Ides of March
- Everett Library Cafe
- 3/15/2013, 9:00 AM - 11:00 PM
March 15, 44 B.C., known as The Ides of March, is when Roman dictator and Gaius Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate house by 60 conspirators in a effort to restore the Roman Republic. Apart from spurring yet more civil wars, Caesar's assassination, which was led by Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus, served but to crown Octavian, Caesar's grand-nephew, as the first Roman emperor.
Our news display will feature stories about the Ides of March and Caesar's powerful influence, including his social and governmental reforms, and will show how they ultimately led to the rise of the Roman Empire.
To celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Teachers College, we will showcase one interesting story per day on the history and development of Teachers College, including its departments, programs and members. Drawn from major national and international newspapers, the display in the Everett Cafe will run for 125 days, Monday, February 4th-Friday, July 26th.
In addition we will continue our weekly displays of educational news displays on a wide range of topics, as well as our daily postings of headlines from around the world.
