For upcoming talks and events, see our calendar.
The Center is pleased to be able to support student initiatives to bring speakers to campus and to organize events relating to the social sciences. Student-generated events have included:
|"Money and Politics in the 2010 Midterm Elections"||A panel discussion featuring Daylin Leach, PA State Senator; Olivia Thorne, League of Women Voters; James Browning, Common Cause; and Carol Hager, Bryn Mawr College Political Science Department. (Co-sponsored with BMC Democracy Matters).|
|Middle East/North Africa Teach-In||A day long multimedia event featuring panel discussions, student presentations, music, art, Skype interviews with eyewitnesses in Egypt and Yemen. The teach-in was opened by Past-President McAuliffe and closed with a lecture by Eve Trout Powell, University of Pennsylvania. (Co-sponsored by Middle East Studies).|
Dalton Hall Faculty Events
One of the Center's goals is to promote community among the Center's resident faculty members. To this end, we have instituted:
- Welcome Back Happy Hour held early in the fall semester.
- Brown Bag Lunches. These casual lunchtime discussions with regular and visiting faculty residents have become a tradition in Dalton Hall. These events help make faculty aware of the research interests of their colleagues and help introduce new and visiting faculty/administrators to the regular faculty in residence.
- Improving Dalton's Social Spaces - Initiative. Faculty and student input is welcomed on the topic of improving social spaces in Dalton Hall and making the Center a gathering place for discussion of world events. We look forward to receiving your input in providing a dedicated space for social science majors, specifically, a Dalton student lounge. Anyone wishing to submit ideas can contact Carol Hager firstname.lastname@example.org.
