Altschuler’s book, published in 2016 by the American bar Association and co-written with former Cornell law professor Faust Rossi, Ten Great American Trials, provides accounts of some of the most highly publicized  and fascinating  court cases of the twentieth century. The book also assesses the impact of cultural, social, and political values on the proceedings and the outcomes. The cases, several of which have been dubbed ‘the crime of the century’, were selected because they are dramatic, suspenseful, emotional, intellectually powerful, and have become part of American culture.

Glenn Altschuler is the Thomas and Dorothy Litwin Professor of American Studies at Cornell University. He received his PhD in American history from Cornell in 1976 and has been an administrator and teacher at Cornell since 1981. He is the author or coauthor of 11 books and more than one thousand essays and reviews. An animating force in the program in American studies at Cornell, Altschuler has won several awards for teaching and undergraduate advising. His work has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio, and The Boston Globe.

Men’s Hockey, Cornell vs. St. Lawrence at Lynah Rink – January 21

Saturday, January 21 – Pre-game food & beverages – 4:30 PM

Game starts at 7:00 PM

Lynah Rink
536 Campus Rd
Ithaca, NY 14853

$20 per person

Come one, come all to watch the Cornell Men’s Hockey team host the St. Lawrence Saints on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 7:00 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to make the pilgrimage back to campus to watch Division 1 hockey with the best fans in the country, the Lynah Faithful.

Before the game, we will meet at The Nines at 4:30 pm to celebrate and enjoy deep-dish pizza. Afterwards, we can head up to the game.  Tickets will be at “Will Call.”

A new twist this year will be the “Blue Line Club” (BLC).  The BLC will take place in Newman Gym for the first and second intermission. See map here.  Since we get a large contingency making the trek down from Buffalo, this will be an opportunity to network with other members of the club.  It could also be a meeting point to catch up with someone on-campus as well.  The cool part about this is that if they are not going to the game, they will not need a hockey ticket to get into Newman Gym.  We will have light food and refreshments there.
