EVERY WEDNESDAY LUNCHEON SERIES
The Every Wednesday Luncheon series connects faculty to the work of their colleagues in the humanities and the humanistic social sciences. On Wednesdays at noon during the academic year, a faculty member gives an informal talk on current research over a catered lunch, followed by group discussion. Faculty of any rank are encouraged to present, but there is a particular emphasis on work by new humanities faculty and visiting professors associated with collaborative projects. The spirit of the Every Wednesday series is transdisciplinary, as scholars from across the Division and the University gather to share ideas and learn from one another.
In the Autumn 2020, each lunchtime event will feature an online conversation between a speaker and a colleague followed by discussion with the audience.
