Fall 2019 Colloquium Series

The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a Wednesday colloquium series featuring work by campus faculty and visitors. These informal sessions consist of a 40-45-minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, and presentations begin at 12:15. Please note: due to increased catering costs and in an effort to go green, the Center will henceforth provide only tea and cookies. Feel free to bring your own coffee and lunch, and please bring your own mug!

All events are in Humanities 1, Room 210 and are free and open to the public.
