Science Salon & Humanities Hour

Faculty share their scholarship with staff at the lunchtime seminar series

“The lectures are not only interesting and stimulating, but they also help us stay in touch with ‘who’s who’ and “who studies what” at Northwestern.  I feel like a more engaged and knowledgeable NU citizen.”

This is what working at a university should be like.  Surrounded by remarkable research and scholarship, the staff gets a chance to taste and enjoy it .... And, hopefully, the faculty and scholars who address us get to appreciate the staff in a different way, and to be challenged by the kinds of questions and concerns that come from outside their field and normal orbit.”

Bring your lunch. Join the discussion. We supply the cookies. From noon to 1 p.m. (unless otherwise noted).

The Science Salon & Humanities Hour series is a staff-initiated series of lectures by faculty for Weinberg College staff members. It has been an ongoing series since 2012, with topics ranging from Professor of Psychology Sandra Waxman’s talk on “Amazing Babies: What Do Infants ‘Think?’ and How Do We Find This Out?” to John Evans Professor of Chemistry Rick Silverman’s discussion about “Drug Discovery: Ingenuity or Serendipity” to Assistant Professor of English John Alba Cutler’s talk on “Chicano Literature and the End(s) of Assimilation.”
