Institute Lunch Colloquia
The Institute hosts a Lunch Colloquia at mid-day on most Wednesdays during the academic year as a weekly opportunity for interdisciplinary discussion and community at Northwestern. During these 90-minute mid-day events, guests and Faculty Fellows of the Institute present a 20-minute paper, preceded by lunch and followed by a Q&A period. The Institute’s Lunch Colloquia (LQ) are divided into three different series
