Graduate Studies Lecture Series

The 2013-14 Graduate Studies Lecture Series is premised on the notion of "signal years." Each invited speaker will address a year of significance in his or her field or practice and link it to related transformations in the broader realms of politics and culture. Charting a fascinating chronology over a wide range of disciplines, the series takes a close look at past moments that continue to resonate today.
