ICGC offers a series of informal noon-time lecture-discussions called “Brown Bag Talks” where guests are invited to bring their lunches and eat during the sessions. Most of the presenters are ICGC Scholars and ICGC-affiliated faculty whose presentations focus on their current research projects. Visiting scholars and practitioners also make presentations in the talk series.
These events are open to the public. All ICGC Brown Bag Talks take place on Fridays from noon to 1:00 p.m. in room 537 Heller Hall, ICGC Commons Area (unless otherwise noted).
