Harvard@Home: Commencement and Cloning

If you missed Harvard’s 353rd Commencement in June—or if you were there and want to relive the experience—be sure to visit Harvard@Home.

A new Harvard@Home program offers nearly two hours of Commencement coverage, including the keynote address by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, remarks by President Lawrence H. Summers, and a Class Day performance by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, better known as rapper Ali G, star of HBO’s Da Ali G Show. The program also includes highlights from Commencement exercises and the Harvard Alumni Association’s annual meeting.

Also new at Harvard@Home is Science in the News: Stem Cells and Cloning. In this 100-minute program, Harvard Medical School students discuss scientific and ethical questions surrounding this controversial issue.

Harvard@Home provides desktop access to lectures, speeches, presentations, performances, and other events. The Web-based project offers nearly 50 free public programs on topics in the arts, the sciences, current affairs, history, literature, and other areas. Programs, which range from a few minutes to a few hours long, are edited and indexed for easy access. For more information, and a program list, visit www.athome.harvard.edu.
