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 Reading Room (303) from 12:00-1:00 p.m.
