Fall 2021 Latina/o Studies Fridays with Faculty Seminar

May 28, 2021

Now in its eighteenth year, the Latina/o Studies Fridays with Faculty seminar offers an opportunity for Latina/o and non-Latina/o students of all levels and disciplines to meet faculty and administrators from across the university for informal conversation about their current research/work in progress and lunch.

This series provides an opportunity for students to hear how faculty became scholars and why they pursue the intellectual questions that structure their research or the professional paths they followed. Students also have the opportunity to discuss their Cornell experiences, education, and future in an informal setting. In addition, it provides a unique opportunity for first year students to meet upper level peers and for undergraduates and graduate students to interact. Students consistently rate this program as one of their best Cornell experiences and among the best things about LSP.

This series made possible with support from the College of Arts & Sciences Dean's office.

12 pm • 4th floor Rockefeller Hall conference room

Face masks are required to attend.
Following the event, a limited number of boxed lunches will be available on a first come, first served basis for those in attendance.
