Our guest lecture series offers opportunity for members of our learning community to gather and engage a visiting scholar in intellectual conversation.

 

These events are held on occasional Wednesday evenings in the Danville prison chapel, which seats seventy-five. Topics in the series have ranged from the Mexican Revolution to Illinois’ biodiversity to neuroscience. Typically, guests suggest a particular text that audience members read in advance of their visit.

 

These are just a few of the authors who have participated in our guest lecture series: James Anderson, author of Black Education in the South; Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here; Chris Benson, author of Death of Innocence: The Emmett Till Story; and Dan Simonco-author of The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us. 

 

The coordinator of our Guest Lecture Series is Tim Bretl, tbretl@illinois.edu
