Film Screening and Discussion: Devrim Arabalari – Cars of the Revolution (2008) Directed by Tolga Ornek (115 minutes) In the years of pulse, Turkey was unable to produce its own cars. This curious but compelling docudrama recreates this race for industrialization by the engineers of the State Railroad Directorate in Eskişehir. Following the 1961 coup d'état by Cemal Gursel, Pasha believes that Turkish people can produce their own cars so he ordered 2 cars. Gunduz and engineers working with him must produce 2 cars in only 130 days!

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
