The Arts & Sciences Brown Bag Lecture Series offers monthly informal talks by SUNY Fredonia faculty members. Each 30-minute presentation is followed by a brief discussion and refreshments. The 2012-13 series will focus on "A Global Perspective."
The talks are free and open to all campus and community members. Classes are also welcome. The lectures are held in the Williams Center, Room S204, and run from noon to 1:30 p.m. Immediately afterwards, students are invited to remain for Brown Bag Desserts, an informal conversation over dessert with the featured speakers. These unscripted conversations give students a terrific chance to talk with faculty outside the classroom and ask burning questions about professional and life experiences, as well as about the lecture topic. This series provides a way to interact with faculty members on a personal and scholarly level, in a forum unavailable to students at many larger schools.
This year's series is directed by Teodora Cox, mathematical sciences; Jack Croxton, psychology; Natalie Gerber, English; Laura Johnson, communication; and, Theodore Lee, biology. Ann Carden, communication, is assisting with public relations.
The series gratefully acknowledges the support of Fredonia College Foundation's Carnahan-Jackson Humanities Fund; the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. John Kijinski; and, the Faculty Student Association.
