Faculty Colloquium Series

facultycolloquium_2010The Faculty Colloquium offers faculty an opportunity to discuss a work-in-progress with colleagues from different disciplines. By long-standing practice, colloquium presenters provide a draft of their current research, which is made available to members of the Glasscock Center listserv. Each colloquium begins with the presenter’s short (10-15 minute) exposition of the project, after which the floor is open for comments and queries. The format is by design informal, conversational, and interdisciplinary.

The Center makes the papers available in advance by providing a non-public URL to all who are on its listserv (SUBSCRIBE to the listserv). To request the URL for an individual paper without subscribing to the listserv, please contact the center in a timely manner at glasscock@tamu.edu or at (979) 845-8328.
