Faculty Lunch Symposium

The Mandel Center for the Humanities sponsors a monthly faculty symposium, in which faculty members present their work to interested colleagues over lunch. This series is designed to foster interdisciplinary conversations among faculty members from a range of disciplines, and to enhance our intellectual community on campus. 

All lectures will be held in the Mandel Seminar Room (1st floor, room 128) from 12:10-1:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
