Brown(e) Bag Lunches

Brown(e) Bag Lunches feature presentations of works-in-progress by Penn graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty to an audience of faculty peers and graduate students. This program is designed not only to improve the quality of scholarship though constructive critique, but also to produce a collegial environment in which faculty and graduate students support each other at all stages of the research and writing process.

Talks will be held Thursdays at noon in the Forum of the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics, unless noted otherwise.
