Retired Faculty Scholarship Seminars
These lunch meetings will enable faculty to share their ongoing research, get feedback and encouragement, and be supported in their scholarly lives. These might be opportunities to discuss the larger dimensions of one’s scholarship, its development over the years, its importance for the academic and larger worlds, its challenges for an independent scholar.
Seven seminars are scheduled each year. Seminars represent a wide variety of topics and have included management, English, Sociology, Romance Languages, and Theology.
Research Seminar meets Noon to 1:30 PM in St. Clement's Hall, 201 Foster St., Room S425 (Conference Room), on the Brighton Campus.
Complimentary light lunch will be available from 11:20 AM and the seminar will begin at noon and conclude by 1:30.
