About Queens College Forum

A series in celebration of Queens College and public discourse.

Originally a series of eight broadcasts in celebration of the completion of the first four years of the college and its first commencement, these lectures continued for a number of years after that milestone (1941-48). Reaching beyond the student body, these lectures strive to help guide people in the intelligent formation of their opinion.

The first half of the series was prepared and presented by the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at Queens College and discusses particularly pressing difficulties of our time: race, delinquency, crime, public opinion formation, and future population policy. The second half of the series focuses on economic prospects in 1941: jobs, crisis, taxes, the consumer, and is presented by the Department of Economics of Queens College.
