Institute Lunch Colloquia

The Institute hosts a Lunch Colloquia series at mid-day on most Wednesdays during the academic year as an 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.
