Interdisciplinary Lecture Series

The Fulton School of Liberal Arts supports this weekly series, featuring expert faculty from across SU who connect their disciplinary perspectives to a broader topic. Although the lectures connect with each other throughout the semester, each Monday’s presentation and discussion stands on its own, and no prior attendance is required. Members of both the campus and the community are welcome to attend. The lectures are also available as a one-credit pass/fail course with no prerequisites (as IDIS 280).

The 2018 spring semester course begins on January 29th and meets on Mondays from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in Fulton Hall 111.
