First Friday Lectures

Offered remotely via Zoom, these free online public lectures complement the curriculum of the Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults. Each month, a Basic Program instructor or guest lecturer discusses texts and ideas from the four-year program or our wider range of course offerings. First Friday Lectures allow the public and our students to hear instructors speak on their own scholarship or interpretation of a text, by contrast to the discussion method of our classrooms. A period of question and answer follows every lecture.

First Friday Lectures are offered at 12:15 p.m. on the first Friday of every month (except in July).
