The maps are on display in the lobby of the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East Street, Woodland and can be viewed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Peter Galison to deliver Sheffrin Lecture at UC Davis

Peter Galison to deliver Sheffrin Lecture at UC Davis

DAVIS  - Peter Galison, the Pellegrino University Professor of the History of Science and of Physics at Harvard University, will deliver the 2011 Sheffrin Lecture in Public Policy at 5 p.m. in the UC Davis Buehler Alumni and Visitor's Center, AGR Hall.

Tracing the political history of secrecy from the Espionage Act to Wikileaks, Galison analyzes the governing principles of what information had to be hidden. What dangers did each period identify among things that should be secret? What were the properties and assumed power of these secrets? What kind of thing could, in the end, properly be declared secret? The lecture is free and open to the public. It is hosted by the Center for Science and Innovation Studies and funded by a gift from Steven M. and Anjali Y. Sheffrin.

Galison was director, with Rob Moss, of "Secrecy" (2008) -- a film about government secrecy.
