The department holds colloquia 2-3 times each semester in which notable invited scholars present their work.  These events are typically research-focused, but are also occasionally teaching-focused.  Colloquia offer students a chance to learn more from visible scholars in the field whose work they will be reading and integrating with their own.  In addition to lecturing, visiting speakers typically hold office hours, providing opportunities for students to cultivate relationships with prominent scholars at other universities.

Colloquium Presenters for the 2014-2015 academic year to come soon!
