Although the weekly talks have proven to be very popular some Fellows have sought opportunities for more direct participation in discussions of particular topics and issues. To this end a more-or-less monthly series of colloquia has been established. A committee selects topics which participants, limited in number to about fifteen, are expected to become informed about prior to each meeting. A reading list, featuring readily-available sources, is circulated to participants ahead of time. Topics range over a wide variety of disciplines and much of the interest generated by this series arises from the opportunity it provides for Fellows from very different fields to interact with one another.
The Colloquiums are free for Fellows of Senior College, but RSVP is required.
It has also been decided to continue our summer program of more informal lunches in the Faculty Club.
All colloquia are scheduled for Thursday afternoon from 2 to 4 in the Senior College Conference Room on the 4th floor at 256 McCaul. We will try to set up optional lunches at a Baldwin Street restaurant before each colloquium. Registration is required in order to keep numbers down, but all members of Senior College are eligible to attend. Recommended readings will be distributed before every session.
