Comp Lit Luncheon Series
The Comparative Literature Luncheon is a weekly informal lunchtime gathering of students, faculty, and other members of the University community. Each week there is a short (20 minute) presentation, by a visitor or a local speaker, on a topic related to any humanities discipline.
Jonathan Eburne (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the coordinator for the series this semester. We meet Mondays in 102 Kern at about 12:15 p.m. Lunch from Au Bon Pain is provided for many of the talks, and coffee and tea are always provided in 102 (no charge). Please see the details on individual event flyers to determine whether lunch is provided that week.
The speaker will begin at about 12:30 p.m. Allowing a few minutes for discussion, we'll conclude in time for classes that meet at 1:25 p.m. All students, faculty, colleagues, and friends are welcome.
We're on YouTube: Recordings are posted on the CompLit YouTube channel!
Recordings of presentations from Spring semester 2015 and prior are on the C-NET website, the regional cable network for educational and government programming. Click here for C-NET archive of broadcast in streaming video. Or, download archived talks at iTunes U.
The 2016-2017 Comparative Literature Luncheon is sponsored in part by a generous contribution from the Center for Global Studies.
