Meetings take place from noon to 1 p.m., in the O’Shaughnessy (“leather”) Room (108), O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center. Each week a professor from a different department will give a brief presentation on:

  • What his or her discipline is.
  • What attracts him or her to it.
  • Why the larger UST community should care.

The meetings will begin with an introduction to the professor’s discipline and area of expertise from noon to 1:15 p.m., followed by a discussion and conversation among students and faculty. All students are invited to participate in the dialogues at noon every Thursday. Cookies and juice will be provided.
