This mini symposium will commemorate the life and work of Dr. Michael Cefola, a Fordham chemistry faculty member from 1950-1975. Dr. Cefola’s daughter-in-law, Ann Cefola, will read from her recently published book of poetry, Free Ferry, that creatively knits together Dr. Cefola’s work in nuclear chemistry, his nuclear family, and classical mythology. Invited speakers will discuss Dr. Cefola’s work and its impact on science and society.
