From the Faculty Lounge Series

From the Faculty Lounge brings together some of Barnard's most notable professors, authors, and experts for enlightening discussions here on campus. Where does their research intersect? Will there be new discoveries and connections? 

Please enjoy this series of conversations designed to highlight original approaches to science, history, literature, art, and more. Each installment reveals a deeper look into the lives, research, and passions of Barnard professors.

These edited recordings were filmed before a live audience and moderated by Provost Linda Bell. We hope you’ll join us to experience the liberal arts in action at future installments of From the Faculty Lounge.
