Criss Cross: The NYU Gallatin Podcast is a forum to showcase the collaborative work done at Gallatin, hosted by KC Trommer. Our episodes include conversations between faculty, alumni, students, and staff about their interdisciplinary work.
“We like to forget how hard it is to do science and how it could have been different. A simple story of science seems more true, more convincing.”
–Matthew Stanley, Einstein’s War
Our second episode is a conversation with Matthew Stanley, professor of the history of science at Gallatin and author of the 2019 book Einstein’s War: How Relativity Triumphed Among the Vicious Nationalism of World War I. Stanley talks with host KC Trommer about the collaboration between Einstein and British astronomer AE Eddington that helped change our understanding of the universe.
