Beginning in Fall 2014, the FDD Dean’s office has organized regularly-scheduled talks by junior faculty members. Held in the evening and accompanied by a dinner, these talks give junior faculty the opportunity to share their research with the campus community, enhancing their visibility to senior faculty and promoting an inclusive and connected scholarly environment. The talks are held in the Judith Shapiro Faculty Dining Room from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The Provost sends invitations to all faculty a few weeks before each talk.
