Lectures and Panel Discussions

What are Philomathean Society lectures and/or panel discussions?
The Philomathean Society’s Lecture Series, which takes place each semester of the academic year, is an important tradition at Philo. In each lecture, one of the University’s most beloved professors presents his or her research to intellectually curious students. A panel discussion, as the name implies, involves multiple professors presenting on the same theme.

What lectures and panel discussions will be delivered this semester? When will they be?
Lectures are typically held in the evenings, after classes. Upcoming lectures and panels are posted below; for a complete schedule, check out our calendar or sign up to Hebdo, our weekly email list.

Do you keep a record of past lectures?
Yes! When the professor gives permission, we post an audio recording of their lecture. Check out our postings under audio for recordings of past lectures.

Who can come to lectures and panel discussions?
Like all Philo events, lectures and panels are open to all members of the community – faculty, staff, students, and the public.

Where are lectures and panel discussions held?

All lectures and panels, unless otherwise advertised, are held in the meeting room of the Philomathean Halls on the fourth floor of College Hall. To access the Halls, use the staircase directly across from the elevator.

Who should I contact if I have questions about lectures and panels?
For questions, email the Second Censor.
