Kate Epstein, Assistant Professor of History at Rutgers University, will present "Seizing the Torch: Globalization, Hegemony, and the Anglo-American Relationship, 1865-1918."

Dr. Epstein joined the History Department at Rutgers-Camden in Fall 2011.  At Rutgers-Camden, she has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in military, diplomatic, and U.S. history, and in the philosophy of history.

Her research focuses on the acquisition of advanced industrial weapons technology; she is particularly interested in the relationship between national security and intellectual property.  Her first book, Torpedo: Inventing the Military-Industrial Complex in the United States and Great Britain (Harvard University Press, 2014), examines these issues through the lens of torpedo development before World War I.
