You and a guest are invited to an advance screening of Focus Features’ new film THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. A synopsis and a link to the movie’s website are below.

Please RSVP at the link below, be sure to include first and last names, e-mail, how many seats you will need (including yourself) and choose "NCSU History Department" for group!

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING SCREENING INFO:
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24 at 7:00PM
RALEIGH GRANDE 16
4840 Grove Barton Rd, Raleigh, NC 27613
***RSVP here: http://bit.ly/12RqiKC

***Seating is first-come, first-serve and is not guaranteed!

The movie is 123 minutes long.

The Theory of Everything is the extraordinary and uplifting story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, and of two people defying the steepest of odds through love. The film, based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire).
In 1963, as a cosmology student at the storied U.K. university Cambridge, Stephen (portrayed by Eddie Redmayne of Les Misérables) is making great strides and is determined to find a “simple, eloquent explanation” for the universe. His own world opens up when he falls deeply in love with an arts major, fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones of The Invisible Woman). But, at 21 years of age, this healthy, active young man receives an earth-shattering diagnosis: motor neuron disease will attack his limbs and his abilities, leaving him with limited speech and movement, and will take his life within two years.
Jane’s love, fierce support, and determination are unwavering – and the duo weds. With his new wife fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen refuses to accept his diagnosis. Jane encourages Stephen to finish his doctorate, which includes his initial theory of the creation of the universe. They start a family, and with his newly earned and widely hailed doctorate Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. As his body faces more limits, his mind continues to explore the outer limits of theoretical physics.
Together, he and Jane defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed – well into the 21st century.

We're having a meeting THIS FRIDAY at 12:30PM in Withers 331 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination, FREE Jimmy Johns will be provided.

We will show a brief PBS documentary entitled "Oswald's Ghost." The film attempts to "reclaim history" from conspiracy theorists "once and for all" by giving a history of the assassination and using modern technology to prove "beyond any doubt" that Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone in doing so. The film features interviews of everyone from top Kennedy Administration officials, to the President's secret service detail and even Lee Harvey Oswald's own brother.

After the film, some of our Department professors will lead us in a discussion about the extent to which the assassination changed the course of American history and whether the United States has ever truly gotten over that day.

To make sure we have enough food for everyone, please RSVP to [email protected] with the number of guests that will be coming with you. Hope to see you there!

Today, we mark the twelfth anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks that changed our country forever. Though time continues its relentless march forward, as historians we have a role to ensure that no one forgets the events of that day. The bravery that was displayed by the passengers of Flight 93, who sacrificed themselves to save our nation's Capitol from certain attack. The countless rescue workers who ran into smoke and flames and worked past exhaustion so that others might live. The thousands of families who lost loved ones in the blink of an eye. The day when total strangers united in grief and it felt as though the whole country stood still.

May we, as a nation never forget September 11th, 2001.

History Club has been invited to partner with the Political Science Club and The Political Science Honor Society to adopt a solider currently deployed in Afghanistan. There will be a box placed in the History Department Offices (350 Withers) from today until this Friday at 5:00PM. Please consider writing a note to our adopted solider as you are thinking about 9/11 and our brave service men and women. Just drop it in the box in Withers (it will be clearly labeled) and we will make sure it gets to our soldier.
The note does not have to be a long one, just saying "thank you" and providing general words of encouragement will suffice.

Below, you will find the introduction about our soldier that we got through the AAUSS Program.
SPC Julia Adams's Introduction- Hi, I think this organization is absolutely awesome! Thank you so much for the support. It feels great knowing we have people back home who truly do care. I'm 21 yrs old, I have a birthday coming up, so I'll be 22 the end of next month. I do have family back in the states. I actually am deployed with my identical twin sister, so I technically have family overseas with me as well, haha. Food wise, I love plain oatmeal, tuna and I LOVE peanut butter! I pretty much love anything healthy. On a side note though, I also love anything chocolate, ha ..especially chocolate chip cookies. Anything chocolate though, I absolutely LOVE. Blankets are always good to have and it's going to be getting really cold here soon. I find it nice to have lotions and body sprays. It's really hard to feel like a girl in Afghanistan, ha, so those things always make me feel good and feel like I'm back home. I love any kind of teddy bears or stuffed animals. Silly, I know, but it's what I like. I'm not too big on candy. I just love chocolate ..I like gum as well. If anything is sent though, I'll completely appreciate it all, 100%. Just receiving care packages in general is a great great feeling. It's like Christmas, haha. Thank you so much for what you do and letting me share a little about myself. Take care!
